The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Placement Principle: A guide to support implementation.

New resource: The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Placement Principle: A guide to support implementation.  

The guide is designed to support practitioners and policy makers in the children and family sectors from all jurisdictions to develop strategies to improve their implementation of the ATSICPP. Its content is strongly influenced by the expert knowledge and experience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander agencies and leaders in the sector who provided their input to its drafting.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Placement Principle (the ATSICPP) aims to keep children connected to their families, communities, cultures and country, and to ensure the participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in decisions about their children’s care and protection. The ATSICPP centres on five elements: prevention, partnership, participation, placement and connection.
