Every child has a right to a safe, happy and permanent home connected to family and community. We do this by strengthening children through culture.

We believe children in care who are supported to learn about and maintain a connection to their culture, religion and language have better outcomes. These connections help children to understand where they have come from and to develop their sense of belonging and identity.

Helping children stay connected with their culture, language and religion can also help children maintain positive relationships with their birth parents, extended family and community. This is important should children be returned to parental care, and in staying connected into their adult years.
