WAVES submission to the Vulnerable Children's Bill

November 14, 2013 at 11:41 AM

WAVES made its submission to the Vulnerable Children's Bill and that is available for you to download here.

Amongst the issues it raised on the Bili is the limited resourcing of CYF and the high threshold for action for most children referrals. Research shows that only 1/3 of children referred as having been exposed to family violence in the police callouts, receive CYF help.

WAVES also support the view of other socail service groups that government take a wider view than child abuse and focus on the impact of poverty and inequality on children’s wellbeing.
