The Family Matters Community Resource kits were developed by SNAICC – National Voice for Our Children, in close consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders, community-controlled organisations and campaign committees in all Australian jurisdictions.

This day marks the 20th anniversary of the release of the landmark ‘Bringing them Home’ Report – the report of the National Inquiry into the Separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children from Their Families.

For more information, or to read the report in full, visit: https://www.humanrights.gov.au/publications/bringing-them-home-report-1997 

Bringing Them Home - 20 years on: an action plan for healing was written by Pat Anderson and Edward Tilton, and  was guided by the Healing Foundation’s Stolen Generations Reference Committee. A full copy of the 2017 report can be downloaded here.
