During this time it is important that Aboriginal children and young people remain connected to, and strong in, culture. The Department for Child Protection has developed a Carer Information Sheet containing resources to support Aboriginal children, young people and families.
- Teaching resources - fun and creative craft activities and traditional sports and games to try
- Wellbeing activities - colouring-in pages and daily physical activity videos
- Aboriginal news sources
- Music - Spotify playlists featuring Aboriginal artists and other great places to uncover emerging Aboriginal singers and songwriters
- Stories for kids — podcasts and stories to read online
- Social media connections
The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet also has great resources to keep you updated with the latest COVID-19 health information.
When talking about COVID-19 for Aboriginal communities on social media, don’t forget to use #OurJobProtectOurMob, #AboriginalHealthInAboriginalHands, #KeepOurMobSafe and #StopTheSpread.
