Each year CREATE participates in National Families Week. The theme this year is Stronger Families, Stronger Communities. This week is all about celebrating Families in all their diversity – whatever family represents to you.
At CREATE we advocate for stability for young people in out-of-home care as a top priority, with a stable and nurturing environment being an important foundation for young people to develop and grow into well-rounded, confident and successful adults. We understand however that this is not the case for all young people in care. During National Families week, we want to give a huge shout out to all the young people we work with, who come from a variety of family backgrounds. Everyone has a different experience and perspective on what family means to them and this week is an incredible opportunity to acknowledge all the different types of families in Australia.
We asked some of our awesome young people what “Family” meant to them – here they are!
