Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Services
It has been over 40 years since policy shifted away from the forced removal of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children. However those policies have left a legacy of trauma and loss that continues to affect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, families and individuals. Their children continue to be removed at higher rates and they spend more time in out-of-home care which is more often with carers who are not Aboriginal or Torress Strait Islander.
Disconnected from family, culture, heritage and their land, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples – many who themselves experienced the out-of-home care system – now struggle to parent with limited understanding of who they are and where they come from, commonly with poor or absent parenting role models. FISH is committed to working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander parents, families and communities and linking them with programs and services to meet their needs and rights.
