Summary

The Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency is the lead Aboriginal child and family support organisation in Australia and the largest provider of Aboriginal family violence, justice support and homelessness services in Victoria.

“This submission is an attempt to synthesise an evidence-based narrative of the learnings and experiences our clients have shared with us over the history of our organisation. The desired outcome of all the recommendations we make within this submission is the self-determination of Aboriginal Victorians. While our evidence documents difficult truths and facts of historical, contemporary and emerging issues within Victoria’s child protection and justice systems; we also provide evidence and data on what works for Aboriginal Victorians now and into the future.”
