Every Child Counts: A campaign for safety
Child protection workers continue to face considerable challenges due to poor decisions made by government. Workloads are increasing, positions have been abolished and the Department faces cuts of tens of millions of dollars over the next few years.
The Every Child Counts campaign will bring members together across DCPFS to ensure they all feel safe at work, have resources they need to do their jobs well, and have fair and reasonable workloads. DCPFS and the members of the community that rely on this valuable service deserve a well-funded, well-resourced service that meets their needs. The ultimate responsibility for addressing these issues lies with Minister, Helen Morton.
Over the past several months, members have been contributing to a stream of questions being fired at Minister Morton during Question Time.
