Earlier today SNAICC CEO Angela Singh tendered her resignation after charges were laid against her partner Wayne Muir in relation to allegations of historic sexual assault.
Allegations of sexual assault must always be taken with the utmost seriousness and investigated by the relevant authorities.
Angela has a long and decorated career working to ensure children are safe and have every opportunity to thrive. She should be recognised for her achievements and her strengths. Angela made a valuable contribution to SNAICC’s work.
SNAICC’s number one priority is the safety of our children. We have been advocating for the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children for almost 40 years. We will continue to take an unwavering position in condemning all forms of violence and abuse against children.
As this matter remains before the court, it is not appropriate for SNAICC to make any further comment.
