Category Reports to Parliament
Publication Date 28 February 2023


This report assesses the extent to which the Department of Communities & Justice’s (DCJ) achieved its five-year strategy to reduce overrepresentation of Aboriginal children in out-of-home care (OOHC).

The Ombudsman’s report shows that the AOS did not achieve its goal of reducing Aboriginal over-representation in OOHC. None of the four targets directed toward that goal were achieved. There was some progress toward each target, and DCJ came close to achieving one of the targets.
