The Children and Health Legislation Amendment (Statement of Recognition, Aboriginal Self-Determination and Other Matters) Bill 2023 seeks to address the over-representation of Aboriginal children in care in Victoria. If passed, it will expand the role of Aboriginal agencies delivering children and family services.
The proposed legislation includes a Statement of Recognition of the impact of past policies on Aboriginal people designed in close consultation with Aboriginal-led children and families services providers.
