Ombudsman’s report on Loddon Mallee child protection leads media update

Today’s media update focuses exclusively on the Ombudsman’s report on child protection in the Loddon Mallee region that was tabled in the Victorian Parliament on Tuesday 25 October.

The Ombudsman found "a practice has developed where the drive to meet numerical targets has overshadowed the interest of children despite evidence that they may be at risk".

Centre CEO Dr Lynette Buoy and Professor Cathy Humphreys were interviewed about the Ombudsman’s findings for Wednesday’s edition of ABC Radio National AM (see link below).
