The cultural support plan is reviewed and updated whenever the case plan is reviewed (at least 6 monthly for all ongoing interventions except long-term guardianship orders and permanent care orders).
It is a fluid document that must reflect changes in the child’s needs and circumstances. Child Safety is responsible for regularly reviewing the cultural support plan, in consultation with the child (when age and developmentally appropriate), the family, other relevant individuals and the cultural practice advisor, to ensure it includes any new cultural information obtained between reviews, and any changes in the child’s needs or circumstances including:
- changes in the child’s placement
- changes to activities—as the child grows, their experiences should be age-appropriate
- plans for reunification with parents or transition to adulthood
- changes to individuals who will have a connection with the child.
