What works? Best practice in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child and family service delivery and a history of the ACCAs
Josie Crawshaw SAF,T CEO and Rosie Elliott from Black Wattle Consulting presented a paper at the Family Relationships Australia conference Showcasing the Evidence Darwin (November 2012). The paper was titled: What works! A report on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander best practice child protection and wellbeing services and their applicability to the NT context for SAF,T, the new Northern Territory peak body for Aboriginal children, youth and families.
The paper presented information about SAF,T, the new NT peak body, and discussed learnings from the four state national tour of the 40 Aboriginal child, youth and family services and supporters and discussed a national history of the ACCAs, the Aboriginal child care agencies (or ACYFS), and their peaks.
The four research reports and research overview as reported by Black Wattle Consulting, are available on the SAF,T website: What we learnt from the research tour.
