A new report from Change the Record "highlights numerous ways Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have been disproportionately affected by the more punitive and restrictive policy responses to the pandemic [in Australia]," including Indigenous children in out-of-home care, according to this article from the Conversation.

According to the article, "First Nations parents have had access to their children in out-of-home care restricted, causing 'distress and anxiety in a time of heightened stress for everyone,'” among other findings.
