Strengthening Our Support of First Nations Children and Young People

One way in which we have been working to strengthen our support of First Nations children and young people in foster care has been the implementation of a First Nations Cultural Connections Review Tool and Panel to monitor and strengthen cultural safety in accordance with best practice standards.

Strengthening Our Support of First Nations Children and Young People

The First Nations Cultural Connections Review Tool (the Tool) was developed to monitor and strengthen cultural safety in accordance with best practice standards. The Tool provides an opportunity to review the cultural support provided to First Nations families, provide an oversight on the progression of cultural support plans, and identify areas of non-compliance. Following the implementation of the Tool, The First Nations Cultural Connections Review (the Review) is conducted twice a year to provide an insight of the findings of the Tool for all First Nations children and young people (C&YP) who are being cared for within an In-Home Care (IHC) service at OzChild.
