The Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Protection Peak (QATSICPP) acknowledges the concern and stress families and communities may be experiencing as we face the challenges of COVID 19 and the more recent omicron strain that is affecting many of us.
We acknowledge and thank the Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Service providers for the incredible work they are doing to keep mob safe, informed, prepared and connected throughout this pandemic. We acknowledge all of our members who remain connected with our mob and thank you for your tireless efforts to ensure our children, young people and families remain safe and together.
Our team has collated the below links to resources we think could help families to cope, including:
- practical tips and information sheets on how to talk to our children and young people about COVID-19 related topics
- activities to keep them active and connected, and
- self-care tips for everyone
QATSICPP wishes to acknowledge our Members as well as the partners and organisations around Australia whose important work is featured in this resource.
