Safe and Supported: The National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2021–2031 (Safe and Supported) has a vision for all children and young people in Australia to reach their full potential by growing up in safe and supportive homes, free from harm and neglect. Alongside the Safe and Supported First Action Plan, this Action Plan sets out a transformative action agenda to protect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people from harm and enable them to thrive.
Australian, state and territory governments, alongside SNAICC and the Leadership Group, have developed this Safe and Supported: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander First Action Plan 2023-2026 (the Action Plan). The Action Plan represents a commitment to systemic change from all Australian governments to build stronger futures for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through empowering their children, young people, families and communities. This Action Plan particularly focuses on achieving safety and wellbeing outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people experiencing disadvantage or vulnerability. It also represents a commitment to take urgent action to reduce the overrepresentation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people in child protection systems.
Safe and Supported sets out a framework for ensuring that all children in Australia enjoy the right to grow up safe and connected to their family, community, and culture.
