Aboriginal Family Led Decision Making Convenor (AFLDM), Child Protection Diversion Pilot Program
  • Base/Location:Njernda Aboriginal Corporation Family Services Unit
  • Reports To:Manager Family Services
  • Hours:Full-time (37.5 hour week)
  • Award:SHADS Level 3 pp 1
  • Position Scope:

    The Aboriginal Child Protection Diversion Trials (CP Diversion Project) will trial innovative, early interventions approaches to divert Aboriginal families away from the child protection system and into culturally safe supports. The trial will test the proposition that by having an Aboriginal organisation leading investigation and decision making at the early stages of a family’s involvement with child protection outcomes for children and families will be improved.

    Njernda has chosen to trial and test the theory that families making decisions through an Aboriginal Family Led Decision Making meeting earlier then required by statue will improve the overall care of Aboriginal Children. This is a 12-month pilot and could lead to significant changes in the way we involve families in decision making.

    In the trial, Child Protection will make direct referrals to Aboriginal Family Led Decision Making (AFLDM) immediately following the first home visit during the investigation phase. It is expected that this will result in meetings that are culturally safe, lead to increase family engagement in and understanding of the process and the joint development of a plan with the family to keep children safe at home and to avoid further involvement of Child Protection.

    This position will run in conjunction with our existing ALFDM convenor position and will support this position in addition to the trial work.
