Introduction

SNAICC – National Voice for our Children is currently undertaking consultations with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and communities, members of Aboriginal community-controlled organisations, and other key stakeholders to inform the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Early Childhood Strategy.

For more information about the development of this Strategy, please visit the website

This survey forms part of these consultations and we welcome your input.

In preparation for these consultations and to inform development of the Strategy, a National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Early Childhood Framework (the Framework) was produced. It may be beneficial, but is not necessary, to read the Framework before responding to the survey. The Framework is available here.

The survey is structured around the five goals of the Framework, and asks you to consider what children and families need to achieve these goals, along with current barriers to improving outcomes.  We also ask you to identify priority actions and any gaps in the Framework.
