QATSICPP recognises the significant risk of our participation in various steering committees, advisory groups and related consultative mechanisms might be interpreted as passive endorsement of a final outcome. Particularly when the end result reflects a clear departure from our established position. A key purpose of publishing this record of advice, is to restate the importance of Aboriginal children and young people being raised by family in community. Stability for Aboriginal children and families exists in relationship and connections to community, culture and country. Being with family, being raised by family in culture is at the heart of an Aboriginal child’s perception of permanence, belonging and identity development.
