Aboriginal Cultural Support Planning

Home > Our Services > Children and Families > Out-of-Home Care Support > Aboriginal Cultural Support Planning

A Cultural Support Plan is required for every Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child in care - within 16 weeks of entering care.

This program assists Child Protection and Community Services Organisations to develop cultural support plans that are meaningful to each individual child.

What we offer

Workers assist the development of individual Cultural Plans by ensuring:

  • Each plan is developed with input from the child, family and their Aboriginal community.
  • Cultural values, beliefs, practices and personal identity is strongly focussed in the plans
  • Connections to Country, family, clan, Community, history, symbolism, cultural expression and events.

We also provide secondary consultation support to care teams in reviewing existing Cultural Support Plans.

Get started

If you require assistance to put together an Aboriginal Cultural Plan for a family member or client please get in touch.
