Latest Media Releases
Federal Assistant Minister for Children and Families, Michelle Landry, has today welcomed the start of this year’s National Children’s Week, which will be held from 24 October to 1 November across Australia.
The Morrison Government is inviting applications for a competitive grant opportunity for the Intercountry Adoptee and Family Support Service (ICAFSS).
The Morrison Government will provide more than $360,000 in funding for the Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS) to undertake ground-breaking research that will enhance support for carers across the nation, and lead to better outcomes for some of our most vulnerable 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.
I want to recognise the Chair of the Tripartite Forum, Donna Ah Chee for hosting us, and I am also very pleased that my colleague Ken Wyatt, our Minister for Indigenous Australians, was able to say a few words and join us today.
We are here to show our support for this tremendous Foundation that Bruce and Denise Morcombe established, as an enduring legacy for their beautiful son Daniel.
