Taikurtirna Tirra-apinthi – Making Safer Families

Kornar Winmil Yunti (KWY) delivers Taikurtirna Tirra-apinthi – Making Safer Families to Aboriginal families in western Adelaide where children are at immediate risk of being placed in out-of-home care. Children are referred to this program from the Department of Child Protection.

Taikurtirna Tirra-Apinthi is a culturally responsive, trauma-informed, family focused approach to reduce the number of Aboriginal children entering out-of-home care.

​Taikurtirna Tirra-Apanthi is focused on achieving the safety, wellbeing, and empowerment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

​The model is based on the understanding that it is in the child’s best interests to remain in the care of their family if it is a safe option.

​Practitioners support parents to address the issues that place their children at risk of being removed. This model includes family-led decision making, coordination of safety plans, therapeutic and trauma-informed practical support.

​This is an outreach model to engage families where they feel safe, either in their homes or elsewhere.
