Burrun Dalai Aboriginal Corporation is a not-for-profit Aboriginal community-controlled organisation providing support to Aboriginal children and young people, their birth families, foster families, and communities. We cover 52,000 square kilometres. We are known as Tamworth & Armidale Children’s Service (TAACS) in the Tamworth and Armidale area.

Our objectives

To provide a safe, supported environment where Aboriginal children and young people can grow strong in culture, family and belonging.
To provide out-of-home care as a last resort and only when such care is in the best interest of the child or young person.
To support the birth family or foster family to provide the best possible care to meet the unique needs of each individual child or young person.
To meet the child or young person's physical, social, emotional, educational, and cultural needs whilst within a Burrun Dalai program.
To work towards keeping children and young people in their families and communities, on country.
To limit foster care to the shortest time where possible so as not to jeopardise family relationships.
To reduce the number of Aboriginal families being known to or entering the child protection system.
To empower Aboriginal families and communities by ensuring self-determination regarding their children.
