Cultural Connections for Child Protection Professionals

Cultural Connections for Child Protection Professionals: Course overview

Course Outline

It is a requirement in NSW that all Aboriginal children and young people in out-of-home care have a Cultural Care Plan and a Cultural Support Plan.

The Cultural Connections Workshop helps child protection practitioners and agency staff support Aboriginal children in care through effective cultural planning.

During the one-day workshop, our Aboriginal trainer will guide you through how to create meaningful and achievable cultural planning, and how to put it into practice. We’ll also build interpersonal skills to help you consult with Aboriginal families and communities; maintaining these relationships is central to forming complete and effective cultural support plans, and gaining the important input of all key figures in a child’s life.
