Abstract

In this Western Australian State Government report it is acknowledged that there has been a systemic problem in dealing with issues of family violence and child abuse in Aboriginal communities. The action plan detailed in the report accepts most of the recommendations from the Inquiry into response by government agencies to complaints of family violence and child abuse in Aboriginal communities (view abstract). Plans outline strengthening responses to child abuse and family violence and to vulnerable children and adults at risk. In addition to strengthening safety within communities, the government also aims to facilitate strengthening governance, confidence, economic capacity and sustainability. To enable improvements initiatives will involve: across-government collaboration and coordination; staff as major agents of change; legislation; improved information sharing; inter-agency protocols; reporting processes and data collection; a child death review process and communications technology. The response also includes specific recommendations for agencies involved in family violence and child abuse in Aboriginal communities.
