Aboriginal Therapeutic Home Based Care Program and Funding Guidelines

These program and funding guidelines assist Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations (ACCOs) funded to deliver Aboriginal therapeutic home based care.

In recognition of the Aboriginal Child Placement Principle, section 13 of the Children, Youth and Families Act 2005, as well as ACCOs’ preference to build therapeutic capacity across their out-of-home care system, Aboriginal therapeutic home based care is inclusive of foster and kinship care placements.

The overall objective of Aboriginal therapeutic home based is to enhance therapeutic care for Aboriginal children and young people in foster and kinship care placements through the enhanced capacity of care teams and staff to deliver a trauma-informed therapeutic response to children and young people.
