23 August 2018.
Target audience for the day:
State and federal policy makers, kinship care practitioners, and kinship care advocacy groups.
Kinship care is defined as family-based care within the child’s extended family or with close friends of the family known to the child, whether formal or informal in nature.
For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, a kinship carer may be another Indigenous person who is a member of their community, a compatible community, or from the same language group.
Purpose for the day:
Identification of the key issues impacting on children in kinship care and their carers throughout Australia, and formulation of recommendations for future advocacy regarding policy development, funding and support.
