CREATE Statement in solidarity with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

CREATE stands in solidarity with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, including the young people we support and the organisations we work alongside every day. There’s an overrepresentation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in out-of-home care that can’t be ignored, and the child welfare system significantly impacts Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. We all have a responsibility to create better outcomes for children, and it starts with reconciliation, truth telling and justice.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices must be at the forefront of change.
CREATE supports the work of all our Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation partners and we encourage you to support their advocacy and campaigns:
