Profiles home

Knowledge Circle collects information from service providers and other agencies who are dedicated to keeping Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children safe and happy in their families and communities.

These profiles provide a snapshot of culturally appropriate approaches that have been shown to work, or show great promise in delivering positive outcomes to children and families.

Each profile has been reviewed in the context of what is described as effective service delivery practice.
