This submission was prepared by Dr Nicole Milburn, Mr Julian Pocock, Mr Matthew Wilson, Ms Fleur Ward, and Associate Professor Campbell Paul on behalf of the Tweddle Foundation. The Tweddle Foundation supports the work of Tweddle’s Nursing, Mental Health and Early Parenting Clinicians.

This submission outlines how “the implementation of a Specialist Infant Court in all Children’s Courts throughout Victoria would reduce the rate of permanent removal of First Nations children from their families and moreover, would support more First Nations babies and toddlers being reunited earlier with their families and into their strong and proud culture, where they belong.”
