Care circles

 

Overview

Care circles is a program where Aboriginal people acting as community representatives in the Shoalhaven area of New South Wales help the Children's Court make some decisions about Aboriginal kids. These decisions are about 'care matters' so they are usually about where kids should live, who they see, or services the family may need to help them care for their kids.
