Placement Prevent and Reunification for Aboriginal Children and Families

Verso Consulting have been commissioned by the Department of Health and Human Services to undertake a review of placement prevention and reunification services for Aboriginal children. 

The recommendations from this review are likely to have a major effect on future service delivery for vulnerable Aboriginal children and young people and Centre members are strongly encouraged to respond to the survey request shown in the web link.

A key component of the review process is for a number of stakeholder forums to be conducted across the state in both metropolitan and country locations. These forums will provide significant opportunity for the sharing of thoughts and ideas that will inform a final report due to be completed in May this year.
