State care changes to save South Australia $20 million annually

Hundreds more staff will be recruited for Families SA to help care for South Australia's most vulnerable children.

Over three years, the Government will recruit 360 full-time staff, on three-year contracts, to replace casual carers.

SA Child Development Minister Jennifer Rankine said the Government had built new housing for caring for young people for whom foster care was not an option.

"This initiative phases out the need to use motel rooms to accommodate them and commercial carers to care for them," she said.

Ms Rankine said the change would save $20 million annually by phasing out use

Patrick Kinnear Manager Families SA Kadina office - a reign of terror

I have learnt so much by being an advocate for parents whose kids have been removed by child protection services.

by Tony Tonkin
Accredited Mental Health Social Worker

I guess I have written about issues concerning social work standards within Child Protection, in fact many of my blogs seem to be about this. I work in a range of areas and the work I do in the child protection area is a very small part of my business and is the area of my business for which I don't get paid.

Families SA Exposed by Guardian for Children

THE disturbing extent of revolving-door foster care for South Australian children has been revealed in figures released by the Office of the Guardian for Children.

There are also 348 children who have lived in 10 or more.

Families SA social workers say some children, known to them as "the unplaceables" have had more than 30 homes in the past three years.

It also has emerged that a

Open letter to Minister Rankine Families SA

I have decided to include an email that I have sent to Minister Rankine Families SA who is the Minister responsible for Child Protection in this state. I know that I have taken all the proper steps at this stage to have this matter resolved but have failed dismally when it comes to having someone recognise the injustice. Hopefully the Minister will have the guts to do something about it. Stay posted for any updates.

Dear Minister Rankine,

To all of those who have had the displeasure of having to deal with Families SA.

After a situation I had the displeasure of being involved in, I began investigating certain elements of the case.

I have just received the DFC documents regarding the case.

I have evidence of....

Families SA falsifying DFC documents.

Families SA providing false and misleading statements.

Families SA placing the lives of children at risk.

I also have the statement "that the child would be removed if you refuse to sign a voluntary agreement"

Families SA Just Don't Care Group

Quotes From the Group "Families SA Just Don't Care"...

 

Ignoring reports, failing to accept and acknowledge Mandatory reports, Failing in their duty care leaving children in feral living conditions ,removing children from good homes and placing them with unsuitable homes thats just a couple of things but we are never going to agree as the government REALLY JUST DONT CARE maybe they would think twice if it was their children.

We can criticise "the system" until we are exhausted or run out of things to say but it is more constructive to think of ways to improve it.
