Latest Media Releases
Assistant Minister for Children and Families, Michelle Landry, has today announced Relationships Australia South Australia (RASA) as the successful provider delivering the Morrison Government’s $4.75 million redesigned Intercountry Adoptee and Family Support Service (ICAFSS).
Up to $20 million in grants is now available to support volunteers in local communities across the nation.
Tomorrow on Day for Daniel, Australia’s largest child safety awareness and education day, it is an important reminder of our duty to protect every Australian child.
We have a real opportunity to build on the momentum that we’ve secured so far when it comes to our aim to strengthen child safety across the nation, and this Forum will be front-and centre of these efforts – especially in the Territory.
Today of course, is a very important occasion and I’m pleased to be a part of the launch of SNAICC’s Family Matters Report for 2020. On behalf of the Morrison Government, I would like to commend SNAICC for their ongoing leadership over the past 40 years in providing an effective voice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.
This of course, is the fourth time that we’ve had the Permanency Conference and I must say congratulations to Adopt Change, and especially Renee Carter, for the huge amount of work that has gone into moving this year’s event into an online format. These are important events, because they were set up in response to the historic agreement by federal, state and territory Ministers in 2017 to improve permanency outcomes for children in out-of-home care.
