Right Now Radio - In June 2013, the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child handed down a critical report following its review of Australia. Australia is a wonderful place for most of its children, however not necessarily all of its children, especially Indigenous children.

Ben Schokman and Evelyn Tadros (Right Now Radio) spoke with Frank Hytten, who recently returned from briefing the UN Committee in Geneva. Frank is the CEO of the Secretariat of National Aboriginal and Islander Child Care (SNAICC), the peak body for Aboriginal children in Australia. They spoke with Frank about his experience in Geneva and what needs to be done to ensure a better future for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in Australia.
