Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander services

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Funded services (formerly the Remote Area Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Care [RAATSICC] program) provide early childhood and family support services within remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait communities.

Services are delivered in centre-based and/or other community settings. The program supports and promotes the wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children within their extended family and cultural community.

Services embrace local community approaches and rely on community participation and decision making.

Services funded

A range of service types are funded including:

  • long day care
  • child and family support
  • kindergarten
  • playgroups
  • outside school hours and vacation care
  • advisory and resource services.
