Inquiries and Reviews

Friday media update

Today’s media update leads with calls for new scrutiny of long-term impacts of abuse by church clergy in Victoria. Also included are the DHS management take-over of a Warrnambool residential care service, the release of reports and data on deaths and serious incidents regarding kids in State care, and the reports on the review of the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act 2006.

Data on kids in care, stronger charter would lead to better outcomes

The Baillieu Government’s publication of disturbing data on the most serious incidents in out-of-home care is a welcome step in the right direction and is a reason for strengthening Victoria’s human rights charter, not weakening it, according to the Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare.

“Transparent data and stronger measures to protect rights would together make a compelling case for action to improve outcomes for vulnerable children and young people,” said Centre President, Mr Kevin Zibell, today.
