No government will admit to making any mistakes. Here we have a media release from the federal government telling us they are running the perfect child protection system Australia wide. I have the same letters from the former minister Phil Reeves, a department of community services DoCS tribunal department of community services DoCS complaints, the whole lot of them. They  will all tell you they never make mistakes and have the perfect system.

This corruption in department of community services DoCS is Australia wide, therefore the federal police should be brought in to organise stings. Better still, have a joint operation and send our feds to the UK, Canada and the US, fix all of these countries cojointly.

What do we get instead. A big noting prime minister appointing another big noting official, a commissioner for children who will big note his arrival at any office, giving them time to cover their tracks. When will something really be done? Anyway, here is the latest load of BS from the government's Julie Collins MP.

National child protection reforms make impact on frontline 

Date:

3/05/2012 
 

 

The Second Annual Report on the National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2009-2020 shows how COAG level reforms can make a real difference on the ground, the Minister for Community Services, Julie Collins MP, said today.

Ms Collins today released the 2010-11 report, which tracks the progress and achievements made during the second year of implementation of the National Framework.

The report shows interstate co-operation is on the increase through vital information sharing between the various child protection systems and Centrelink, Medicare and the Child Support Agency.

“This is all about child protection case workers having access to information about vulnerable kids and families to help them do their work,” Ms Collins said.

“There were almost 10,000 requests for information from child protection agencies to Centrelink, Medicare and the Child Support Agencies between October 2010 and October 2011.

“Since the protocol began in 2009, there have been over 24,000 requests for information.

“This information assists in investigations of suspected cases of abuse and neglect and ensures better care for children.

“This is a COAG level reform having a real impact on the ground and the Government is working with the states and territories about ways to expand it to other Commonwealth agencies.

The Second Annual Report brings also highlights achievements under the National Framework in 2010-11 including:

  • The roll out of the first ever National Standards for out-of-home care in July 2011. Planning for a national biennial survey of children and young people in out-of-home care.
  • The first nationally consistent approach to planning for young people leaving out-of-home care.
  • The National Research Agenda for Protecting Australia’s Children 2011-14, which includes $600,000 over three years for research focussing on vulnerable children to inform future policy and service delivery to Australia’s children and their families.
  • The development of a carer’s online resource to improve their access to information about the range of support and services available to them.

“Reducing child abuse and neglect is not an easy task and it will take time – the National Framework provides the foundation for long term change,” Ms Collins said.

“Commonwealth, state and territory governments will also continue to work with the non-government sector, through the Coalition of Organisations Committed to the Safety and Wellbeing of Australia’s Children to implement the National Framework.”

The Second Annual Report has been endorsed by Commonwealth, state and territory ministers through the Standing Council on Community, Housing and Disability Services.

What is most alarming is that Pru Goward is the chair person of the group who made this report. Pru Goward Minister Department of Communities NSW came into her position on lies,  promising to return 4000 children. Pru's department is responsible for the death of Tanilla.

Foreword

I am pleased to submit this report to the Council of Australian Governments and the Australian community. This is the second in a series of three annual reports outlining progress in implementing the Protecting Children is Everyone’s Business: National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2009-2020 (the National Framework).
Ensuring vulnerable children get a fair go in life has been a driving force behind the policy reform governments have undertaken in recent years. Under the umbrella of the National Framework, we have made significant progress to ensure that children grow up healthily, with a good education and with opportunities for a bright future.
Protecting children is a shared responsibility. The Commonwealth and state and territory governments continue to work together with our non-government colleagues, including the Coalition of Organisations Committed to the Safety and Wellbeing of Australia’s Children (the Coalition) and state and territory Children’s Commissioners, to ensure better outcomes for Australia’s children.
Our actions under the National Framework are increasingly interlinked and connected to broader strategies and social reforms. This allows us to provide a more holistic approach to ensuring the wellbeing of our children, starting with prevention and early intervention, all the way through to statutory child protection.
This second annual report provides the opportunity to assess our progress under the National Framework: to celebrate areas where we are making a difference and honestly identify areas where we are facing challenges. We will look to further consolidate our achievements as we head towards the end of the first three-year action plan in 2011–12 and commit to future actions to make protecting Australia’s children everyone’s business.
Contributions to this report have been provided by the Commonwealth and state and territory governments, the Coalition and the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW). The data provided is the most up-to-date available on issues of child health, development, wellbeing and protection. The National Framework has a long-term focus and it is acknowledged that measuring a reduction in child abuse and neglect is difficult as data may not be sensitive to change over a short period. Over time however, we will be able to use this data to demonstrate trends and measure progress towards the National Framework’s high-level target of a substantial and sustained reduction in child abuse and neglect in Australia.
Once again, I thank the Community Services Ministers, other Ministers who have responsibility for implementing actions under the National Framework, respective administrations and the Coalition for their contributions and cooperation in compiling the information in this report and their continued commitment to the safety and wellbeing of Australia’s children and young people and their families.

The bad news is that Pru Goward is the chairperson of this committee. So now they have the head of the most corrupt, greediest DoCS department in Australia who want to start adoption out the kids they have stolen as much as possible spreading her evil across Australia.

The Gillard Government today announced the creation of a National Children’s Commissioner within the Australian Human Rights Commission.

Attorney-General Nicola Roxon said that the new Commissioner will focus on promoting the rights, wellbeing and development of children and young people in Australia.

“For the first time, Australia will have a dedicated advocate focussed on the human rights of children and young people at the national level,” Ms Roxon said.

“The Children’s Commissioner will ensure the voices of children and young people are heard in the development of Commonwealth policies and programs.”

The Minister for Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs Jenny Macklin said establishing a Federal Children’s Commissioner was key action under the Government’s National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2009-2020.

 

“We want every child to grow up safe, happy and well. The new Commissioner will represent the views of children and young people, particularly those most vulnerable, at the national level,” Ms Macklin said.

 

Minister for Community Services Julie Collins said children and young people need a national advocate to ensure their rights are reflected in national policies and programs.

“The National Children’s Commissioner will have a key role in advocating for the rights of children across Australia,” Ms Collins said.

“The national Commissioner will not duplicate but complement the work of states and territories, particularly the work of other commissioners and guardians.”

The Children’s Commissioner will take a broad advocacy role to promote public awareness of issues affecting children, conduct research and education programs, consult directly with children and representative organisations as well as monitor Commonwealth legislation, policies and programs that relate to children’s rights, wellbeing and development.

The Government will call for expressions of interest for the position shortly.  Legislation for the Commissioner will be introduced later this year and the new Commissioner is expected to take office by the end of 2012.

Funding for the establishment of the Children’s Commissioner will be fully offset  from savings across the Attorney-General’s and the Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs portfolios.

DECLARING "We want to give kids the best start in life", Attorney-General Nicola Roxon has moved to set up a National Children's Commissioner.

Note: What an absolute waste of time and money. Why dont they fix the system they have and spend this money on ending the corruption? Luke's Dad

The commissioner would ensure there was an independent, child-focused voice to advocate for children and young people at the national level, the attorney told parliament today as she introduced legislation to establish the office.

The commissioner would raise public awareness of issues affecting children through discussion, research and educational programs.

It would examine existing and proposed commonwealth legislation to determine it recognises and protects children's rights and consult directly with children and their representative organisations.

"This will signal to children and young people that we as adults think that they matter - that we value their childhood and that we listen to their needs and hopes," Ms Roxon said.

 


The commissioner would have a clear focus on vulnerable or at-risk groups.

However, the work of state and territory bodies would not be duplicated, with the national commissioner having no guardianship role or the power to deal with individual cases.

The new commissioner, who will come under the umbrella of the Australian Human Rights Commission, will cost $3.5 million over four years.

Debate on the Australian Human Rights Commission Amendment (National Children's Commissioner) Bill 2012 was adjourned.

Human Rights Commission president Catherine Branson later told a Senate estimates hearing the $3.5 million in funding being provided wasn't enough to get the job done.

The money would cover the salaries of the new commissioner and their staff "but would not be adequate to assist with what we would expect to be a rise in complaints made under the convention on the rights of the child".

"And it will not have the capacity to support the additional demands on the support services of the commission," Ms Branson said, citing the potential need for extra lawyers, finance and human resources staff.
