Summary

The Victorian Aboriginal Children and Young People’s Alliance (VACYPA) represents fifteen Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations that provide family, child and youth services in Victoria.

This is the second submission made by VACYPA to the Yoorrook Justice Commission. VACYPA made a submission in December 2022, raising five issues that require urgent attention:

  • Self-determination
  • Law reform and compliance with law and policy
  • Early help
  • Workforce
  • Post-care supports.

Since then, the Alliance has prepared a comprehensive plan for system reform. This additional submission lays out that reform and the underlying rationale.
