Indigenous Women Fleeing Violence Need Access To Safe Housing
Indigenous children account for more than half of the population of children placed in state care in Western Australia. This over representation is troubling and efforts are being made by the Western Australia state government to close the gap. However, new research has found that these efforts have yet to acknowledge the root of the problem. Kyylie Cripps, Scientia Fellow and Senior Lecturer at the University of New South Wales spoke to The Daily to talk to us more about this research and just how important it is to provide access to safe housing options for Indigenous women and their children in an effort to reduce the over representation of Indigenous children in out of home care.
