MYAN ACT releases Youth & Family Sector Survey 2015

MYAN ACT has a focus on sector development to improve the capacity of services to support young people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds. This is the second MYAN ACT CYFSP Sector Survey. The first survey was completed in 2012 and identified benchmarks by which we can measure improvements to service delivery across the ACT over time. The survey aims to identify what training or other support would assist CYFSP services to improve service delivery to young people from CALD backgrounds.

We acknowledge the Ngunnawal people as the traditional owners and continuing custodians of the lands of the ACT and we pay our respects to the Elders, their families and ancestors.

We acknowledge that the effects of the forced removal of Indigenous children from their families as well as past racist policies and actions continues today.

We acknowledge that Indigenous people hold distinctive rights as the original peoples of modern day Australia, including the right to a distinct status and culture, self-determination and land.

We celebrate Ngunnawal culture and the invaluable contribution to the community.
