Staying connected to culture

Information for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders

It's vital for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander foster children to maintain close links to their family, community and culture. We do everything we can to ensure this connection stays strong and fills kids and teens with a sense of pride, belonging and identity. Children with a clear sense of identity are more likely to develop healthy self-esteem, confidence and grow into resilient adults.
