Cultural planning for Aboriginal children - new model

A new model of cultural planning has been implemented requiring the development of a cultural plan to be commenced within the first two weeks of an Aboriginal child being placed in out-of-home care.  The model assumes that everyone has a role in cultural planning and that Aboriginal people are best placed to provide cultural knowledge and inform decision making for Aboriginal children.

The child’s cultural plan includes various elements to promote, maintain and enhance the child’s connection to their County and culture while they are in out-of-home care.
