On 1 July 2019, the Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) brought together the former departments of Family and Community Services (FACS) and Justice. While FACS no longer exists, our apology to the Stolen Generations stands. You can read our apology to the Stolen Generations here.

Informed by lessons of the past, DCJ is improving how we work with Aboriginal people and communities. We listen and learn from the knowledge, strength and resilience of Stolen Generations Survivors, Aboriginal Elders and Aboriginal communities.
