Family Matters campaign launched in SA

Posted on: Fri 26 May 2017

Family Matters is a national campaign to ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people grow up safe and cared for in family, community and culture.

Last week, the campaign was officially launched in South Australia at an event in Rundle Mall which included performances from Yellaka, Dusty Feet Mob and Kalaya Children’s Choir.

Leata Clarke is Chairperson of the Family Matters campaign in South Australia and she spoke to Small Change’s Lisa Burns about the campaign, the out-of-home care rates for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, the systemic changes that need to take place, and her hopes for the campaign’s future.
