The KARI Clinic receives an upgrade to their office in Liverpool.
The team is consistently going from strength to strength. The team’s expertise has been published in research paper Taking culture seriously: Can we improve the developmental health and well‐being of Australian Aboriginal children in out-of-home care?
The purpose of the paper, coordinated by Department of Community Paediatrics, South Western Sydney Local Health District, was to determine the health and developmental needs of a subset of children in out‐of-home care with KARI, who had been in stable care for at least a year.
The Department wanted to identify child, carer, and intervention characteristics that contributed to children doing well. They also wanted to identify enablers and barriers to providing culturally competent intervention.
“Children in out‐of‐home care have well‐documented health and developmental needs. Research suggests that Aboriginal children in care have unmet health and intervention needs. In metropolitan Sydney, KARI, an Aboriginal organization, provides support to Indigenous children in care, including clinical assessment and intervention.” – Raman S, Ruston S, Irwin S, Tran P, Hotton P, Thorne S.
