Representatives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families say state governments, businesses and community groups must help efforts to reduce soaring levels of Indigenous children being removed from their families.

 

A group of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander non-government organisations has launched a round of community consultations across the country in the hope of addressing the over-representation of Indigenous children in out-of-home care.

 

Organisers say the consultations will raise awareness that children should only be removed from their families as a last resort.
