Number of Aboriginal children in out-of-home-care system continues to rise
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children deserve the same opportunities as all other children yet they are now 10 times more likely to be removed from their families than non-Indigenous children with the number of Aboriginal children in the out-of-home-care system increasing every year.
