What we need.
1 child = 1 case – every child counts / every carer counts.
This enables carers to provide comprehensive care to children and ensure that the best quality care is provided as quickly as possible.
No NLO List – every child has an allocated caseworker.
Stop hiding the cases, these cases still create work and may need immediate responses that then become reactive and not in the best interests of children or families.
Demand Funding model – to all open cases.
This ensures the adequate resourcing of staff in order to adapt to the changing requirements of a child’s care. Proper resourcing will provide safety for children in care and safer workplaces for carers.
Fix the Care Crisis – create a dedicated foster care team.
Increase the number of foster carers and provide more support for these people.
Create a dedicated Family Domestic Violence Team
Increase funding so staff are able to respond rapidly to families in need and provide them with essential support and link to services.
National Child Protection Week was just the start of our campaign.
