Reviewing implementation of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Placement Principle (2020)

Reviewing implementation of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Placement Principle (2020)

13 April 2021

This series of reports reviews state and territory progress in implementing the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Placement Principle.

These reports have been published by SNAICC - National Voice for our Children.

It is the third annual review of compliance in implementing the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Placement Principle (ATSICPP) across Australia.

The reviews highlight that though the states and territories have undertaken significant work to strengthen adherence, overall implementation remains poor and limited. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children continue to be separated from family and culture at high rates and there are a lack of comprehensive approaches to involving children, families, and communities in decisions.

Access the state and territory reports via the SNAICC website.
