Story audio

The National Aboriginal and Islander Children's Day will celebrate 25 years of raising awareness of Indigenous child protection issues. A lot has changed over the 25 years but there's still a lot of work to be done. The National Aboriginal and Islander Children's Day, now in its 25th year, is held on the 4 August and the celebrations will focus on how far we've come and how far there is to go.

The launching of the event will be in Northern Melbourne, but many sessional gatherings will be held across Australia to create awareness of Indigenous children protection. The Secretariat of the National Aboriginal and Islander Child Care (SNAICC) is advocating for a better future for Indigenous children and hopes Australia includes them into the children scheme which is being developed.
