National Family Survey features in triple j Hack

“It was weird to wake up and have Mum not be there.”

The National Family Survey research project SHINE for Kids is supporting was discussed in this episode of Hack on triple j, ABC radio.

The episode is about children with a parent in custody and features our long-time partner, Associate Professor Catherine Flynn from Monash University who talked about the survey, issues children face and what must be done to improve outcomes for families caught in the justice system through no fault of their own.

Also interviewed are some very impressive young adults who were children when their parent or parents were incarcerated and speak very openly and insightfully about their experiences.

“My dream job is to be a child protection caseworker … I want to be someone that they [kids] can turn to and be comfortable with because I’ve been through that,” says one young person.

Thank you for covering this important issue triple j, Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).
