Children living in households with members of the Stolen Generations
The report collated by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) provides a new perspective on the intergenerational impact of removal, by looking at outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children aged under 15 who live in households with Stolen Generations survivors. It is the first time children have been connected to adults in the same household who were removed from their families to uncover direct evidence of the intergenerational effects of removal. This report extends the analyses from two previous reports on the Stolen Generations prepared by AIHW for The Healing Foundation. This report looks at five outcome areas for children, including health, life stressors, school attendance, language and culture, and some household measures.
