Aboriginal Consultation Guide
The Aboriginal Child, Family and Community Care State Secretariat (AbSec) has developed an informative guide to assist the non-government out-of-home care (OOHC) sector to work consistently, effectively and sensitively with Aboriginal children, families and communities when providing services. The Aboriginal Consultation Guide highlights the legislative requirements of the Children and Young Persons (Care and Protection) Act 1998 that relate to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, including self-determination, participation in decision-making and the Placement Principles and provides practical advice to assist agencies to apply these requirements in their day-to-day work with Aboriginal children, families and communities.

Dual Diagnosis support kit - resources to help workers and families where there is parental dual diagnosis.

Working with Aboriginal people and communities - a practice resource providing field staff with key facts and information relevant to working with Aboriginal communities in NSW.

Also see the Brighter Futures resources page and translated resources in community languages.
