'The stolen generations era ended, but not the removal of kids': new role to protect Indigenous children

Ella Archibald-Binge - The Sydney Morning Herald

This article from the Sydney Morning Herald highlights a new position that has been created - New South Wales (NSW) deputy guardian for Aboriginal children and young people - as part of government reforms to reduce the stark over-representation of Indigenous children in state care, and the head of the national peak body for First Nations children, Richard Weston, who will fill that role. "The position was created in response to the Family is Culture report, which last year made 125 recommendations to reform every cog of a child protection system that had 'failed Aboriginal families' in NSW," says the article.
