  • Year: 2004

  • Published Location: North Fitzroy, Vic
  • Country: Australia

Phase One of the Parenting Information Project consists of a literature review, program audit and substantial national consultations on parenting information and programs for Australian parents including those from culturally and linguistically diverse communities. This document reports upon the Indigenous component. The Department of Child and Family Studies at Swinburne University of Technology reviewed the literature on Indigenous parenting, and conducted a program audit which involved the identification and documentation of the diverse range of current Australian and international Indigenous parenting programs. The Secretariat of the National Aboriginal and Islander Child Care (SNAICC) consulted with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander parents, foster carers, Indigenous people in transition to parenthood and other family or community members responsible for bringing up children in remote, rural and metropolitan areas to find out what additional parenting information and support governments should provide. The report covers all aspects of the project, including a survey of key stakeholders specialising in Indigenous family issues in the areas of policy development, research and development, program planning and service delivery.
