Family is Culture Bill 2022

Family is Culture Bill 2022

The Upper House has passed the NSW Government’s Children and Young Persons (Care and Protection) Amendment (Family is Culture) Bill 2022. The Bill as we view it has been introduced in the 11th hour without co-design, proper engagement, or good faith with Aboriginal Communities. As a result, we believe that the Bill is inadequate and is a water-downed version of the legislative recommendations for change made by the 2019 Family is Culture Independent Review of Aboriginal Children and Young People in Out-of-Home Care (FIC Review).
