Aboriginal Services and Practice Framework

The Department for Child Protection and Family Support (the Department) is committed to improve outcomes for Aboriginal children, families and communities that come into contact with the child protection system. The Aboriginal Service and Practice Framework 2016-2018 (the Framework) has been designed to support and sustain this commitment.
  • The Framework identifies the vision, foundation elements, guiding principles and priority areas that will shape this commitment over the next three years.
  • The Framework commits the Department to the development of an implementation plan that will assist in delivering on the priority areas.
  • The Framework is primarily intended to build on and inform the Department’s review, development and implementation of services, policies and practice when working with Aboriginal children, their families and communities.
  • It is also a resource that can support Department funded community sector organisations working with Aboriginal children, families and communities.
