Changing Tracks action plan released today – ending over-representation is key

A media release issued by Family Matters Queensland today on the Changing Tracks 2020-22 Action Plan calls for a centre of excellence to be developed by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples based on evidence-based programs that work for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families to help end the disproportionate representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in care by 2037. Family Matters Queensland contends reducing the high number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in care must be considered an urgent priority.
