Koorie kids: growing strong in their culture

Five year plan for Aboriginal children in out of home care

I've recently had the opportunity to work with a number of Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations and Community Service Organisations to develop a submission to inform the development of this vitally important plan for Koorie kids. The submission, respectfully signed by Muriel Bamblett on behalf of the ACCOs and Deb Tsorbaris on behalf of the CSOs, was provided to the Minister for Community Services, the Hon Mary Wooldridge MP on 7 November.

I intend to further collaborate with stakeholders during the first half of 2014 to progress the submission's details, and anticipate providing further advice to Minister Wooldrige by 30 June 2014.
