The Northern Territory Minister for Aboriginal Affairs Selena Uibo says everything is being done to ensure kinship care is available for Aboriginal children
The Everyone Together Aboriginal Affairs progress report released last month said the government was falling behind in several targets, including the proportion of Aboriginal children in kinship care.
The progress report said 35 per cent of Aboriginal children in out-of-home care are placed with a kinship carer or an Aboriginal carer.
Minister Selena Uibo said the NT Government were working to improve rates of kinship care.
She spoke with CAAMA’s Philippe Perez about this and many other issues when she dropped into the studios on Wednesday.
