AIHW Children’s report

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 members of the Stolen Generations. 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.

Australia needs a national Intergenerational Trauma strategy that provides strategic guidance for governments and service providers to break the cycle of trauma for our future.
