Cultural warning: This content contains links to sites that may contain the names and images of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people now deceased.

Child Safety acknowledges the impact on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of the forced removal of children from their families. Historical and past practices continue to have a devastating effect on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, communities and cultural continuity.

Child Safety endeavours to protect the rights of future generations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people by reducing the over-representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people in child protection.
