Culturally and linguistically diverse children and young people

Maintaining connections with family, community, language, religion and culture is essential to the long-term wellbeing of kids who come from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds. Wherever possible, CALD kids are placed with carers of the same cultural background. Carers who do not share a cultural background can do a lot to keep kids connected with their communities and nurture their sense of identity.
