Fight Child Protection Department Corruption: 
Social work students are increasingly being asked to act as advocates – and that’s a good thing

As the below article suggests, to gain experience first hand of how parents are treated by the child protection department you intend to work for is invaluable. It may mean you wish to never end up being like the other staff you will be working for.

Please email us if you are interested in acting as a support person for someone in your area today. No one will know that you have found your family through Luke's Army, we offer this service only as a way of helping to improve the child protection system.

Child Welfare System was benign outlet for children

For the Naysayers
 
I must interject because at one time, I too, thought as those in the public yet unaffected... I believed that the Child Welfare System was benign outlet for children who had been truly abused.
 
Contrary to misconception, it is not strictly abusive situations that are being followed. Loving families too, are being subjected to oppressive practice which can - and does - often result in harmful outcomes.
