FACS NSW - Staff crisis leaves foster children in limbo

Up to 60 foster children and their carers have been left in limbo after a caseworker staffing crisis at a Family and Community Services centre in northern NSW.

The manager of out-of-home care at the Ballina community services centre has not been replaced after going on urgent leave and a caseworker responsible for 36 foster children moved to a new role last month with no substitute found.

Barbara Michel, a co-ordinator with foster care support group Connecting Carers, described the office as a ''ghost town''.

The 60 children are being transferred from the care of the Department of Family and

My life of hell with DoCS NSW (FACS - Family and Community Services New South Wales)

My life of hell with DoCS NSW (FACS - Family and Community Services New South Wales)

I have been the victim of docs NSW since I was 16 yrs old, while I was in foster care I was raped by my own brother in law and one of his mates.

I tried telling my foster sister, foster mother but they both called me a liar so I kept the pain of it to myself for a very long time. In august 1987 my ex defacto John Macko assaulted my 2 and a half yr old son James, who ended up in hospital with swelling to the brain.

The Dr told me if my son does recover he will be brain damaged, blind for life. Instead of the Maitland police locking John up for this they let him out on self bail.

Pru Goward NSW Minister for Family and Community Services stealing children and extorting money from devastated parents.

Pru Goward, Minister for Family and Community Services in NSW made a pre-election promise to return 4000 children to their homes, which would still not reduce the average number of children in foster carer throughout NSW to the national average.

Not only is she a thief, but an extortionist. Money has taken over her list of priorities, extorted from devastated parents who have had their children legally kidnapped.
