Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander family led decision making trial

  • Description
    Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander family led decision making aimed to promote self-determination, participation and shared decision making at different phases of the child protection continuum; deepen families’ understanding of child protection processes and the reasons for the involvement of child protection services; empower families to make informed choices about the child’s best interest and put decision-making around child protection concerns in the hands of the child’s immediate and extended family; empower families and their support networks to think and plan creatively for their children and utilise family strengths and resources to resolve child protection worries; and redress the power imbalance in child protection decision-making by providing accessible and culturally safe forums where families feel comfortable actively participating and working in partnership with the statutory organisations.
