A three-year plan to im­prove out­comes for Abo­rig­i­nal chil­dren, fam­i­lies and com­mu­ni­ties in the Kim­ber­ley and wider WA has been launched by the State Govern­ment.

The 2016-18 Abo­rig­i­nal Ser­vices and Prac­tice Frame­work builds on cur­rent out-of-home care re­forms and is in­tended to im­prove out­comes for indige­nous peo­ple who come into con­tact with the child protection sys­tem.

Child Protection Min­is­ter An­drea Mitchell said the in­creas­ing num­ber of Abo­rig­i­nal chil­dren en­ter­ing out-of-home care re­quired a cul­tur­ally re­spon­sive ap­proach to im­prove the de­liv­ery of ser­vices for Abo­rig­i­nal chil­dren and fam­i­lies.
