THE SECRET HISTORY of SOCIAL SERVICE CRIMES: HITLER + today's SOCIAL WORKER

“In the best interest of the child” sounds familiar?  “In the best interest of the child", "The "Lebensborn" project was one of most secret and terrifying Nazi projects.

“In the best interest of the child" - Do you know what this means...?

It was an SS Nazi slogan, now used by today's family courts to determine custody: It is also... the prime directive of all Child Protection Services.

Will Doncaster's children be safer under outsourced social care management?

Judy Cooper looks at the implications of the government’s ‘radical’ decision to strip Doncaster council of its children’s services responsibilities

When the government announced last month that Doncaster’s children’s services were to be outsourced to an independent trust, nobody in the sector was particularly surprised.

In fact, the move was widely predicted as soon as Professor Julian Le Grand – a health economist who favours more competition among public services – was asked to head up a review on possible ways forward

Funding certainty for vital services for families and children

Fight Child Protection Department Corruption: 
Funding certainty for vital services for families and children
One wonders about Funding certainty for vital services for families and children. Do Julie Collins MP, Mark Dreyfus MP, Shayne Neumann MP and Jenny Macklin MP really believe that the organisations this money is allocated to will make a difference, or will this funding be pocketed. How can anyone do anything to help children and families when the child protection departments across Australia are a law unto themselves, and children in the system are doomed to be abused, molested, murdered and taken advantage of by those who make money off these children.

World wide economic reform has seen mothers forced into the workforce and placing their babies into the care of others. Great trust is required and mothers and children go through great anxiety when having this forced separation placed on them.

The traditions of mum, dad and the kids, with dad heading off to work have been slowly killed off, and now the ideas of a community caring for the widowed and single mothers or fathers have have been dealt a great blow.

Quit call by youth workers in West Australia's juvenile justice system

WA's crisis-ridden juvenile justice system is about to worsen with a quarter of the state's at-risk youth intervention workers threatening to quit.

Sources said morale among prevention and diversion officers was at an all-time low as a result of being unable to do their jobs because they were being used as makeshift parole officers instead.

And they claim this will lead to more young people coming into contact with the courts, placing further pressure on the system.
