Family Matters - join the public forum to look at factors contributing to the high number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in out of home care -- and solutions.

SNAICC and partner organisations will hold a full day public forum in Perth on Friday 13 June 2014 at the University Club at UWA.

Find out more about the Family Matters forum or sign up to attend.

"Family Matters - Kids safe in culture, not in care" is the theme for the forum and a project by SNAICC and partner organisations to address over-representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in care.

For the Perth forum, SNAICC (Secretariat of National Aboriginal and Islander Child Care) is working with Yorganop and WACOSS.
