Care Circles



Care circles was a program where Aboriginal people acting as community representatives in the Shoalhaven area of New South Wales would help the Children's Court make some decisions about Aboriginal kids.

These decisions were about 'care matters,' such as where kids should live, who they see, or services the family may need to help them care for their kids.
