Research shows Australian government continuing to fail our most vulnerable children almost 30 years after signing the UN Children’s Convention

SYDNEY, Thursday 1 November 2018:  Australia is not making sufficient progress in policies and programs to support children, particularly disadvantaged children in our country. We have regressed in areas of critical importance and systems designed to protect children are in crisis.

 “With over five million children in Australia, we should be ensuring that the decisions we make, which impact on the lives of children and young people now and in the future, are made with them in mind and include processes for them to have their say as citizens and significant stakeholders,” said Tony Stuart, CEO of UNICEF Australia.

New South Wales politics Fears of ‘another stolen generation’ after New South Wales' move on foster care

The New South Wales government has quietly tabled a piece of legislation that, if passed, will have a lasting impact on the lives of thousands of children taken into state care every year.

Babies for Cash – How the State abuses infants by destroying the mother-child bond in CPS abductions

Infants-kidnapped-CPS

A baby’s first year is crucial to a baby’s emotional and cognitive development. It is in the earliest months of life that the foundations for basic trust, security, and relationships are laid. The parent-child relationship is the environment in which that is designed to happen.

Yet the majority of children who enter foster care are taken within their first year of life, depriving them of critical bonding time and causing permanent trauma and damage to the babies’ ability to trust.
