The Empowering Families Innovation Grants aim to generate ideas for new initiatives, programs or ways of working that will help keep Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children safe, well and connected to family, kin, culture and country.
The Empowering Families Innovation Grants Round 2 is a targeted approach, to focus on one or more of the following five focus areas:
- Family Finder Services
- Targeted Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander foster carer recruitment and support
- Pilot and evaluation of in home support arrangements that enable family preservation
- Reunification initiatives for age groups or locations outside of NEWPIN scope (i.e. excluding children under five and half years old in Far North Queensland)
- Innovative approaches for enabling the voices of children and families to be heard in the child and family service system (from early intervention through to the tertiary system).
