Research shows Jobs for Families will have a negative impact on indigenous kids in care
New research shows the Government's Jobs for Families Child Care Package could further disadvantage indigenous children.

The research, conducted by Deloitte Access Economics for Australia's national peak body for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children (SNAICC), reveals that the abolition of the Budget Based Funding Program and the introduction of an activity test could significantly reduce access to early years services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.

According to SNAICC Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children are twice as likely to be developmentally vulnerable early in life, and half as likely to access early childhood education and care services as non-Indigenous children and while the organisation applauds the investment in early learning they claim that the proposed package will not progress the stated policy objective to Close the Gap.
