CYF Complaints Authority Proposal

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 10:23 am Thu 22nd February 2007

Don’t be fooled by the CYF complaints authority proposal. While United Future is hailing this as a big success the government position is that the authority will not be independent but will form part of the ministry of social development. This is not an independent authority; it is just hiring a few more people in a government department to investigate a lack of responsibility by the same department. If CYF is failing that failure belongs to Ruth Dyson and the head of her department, and it will continue to fail while government policy and the family court produce even more work for CYF.
Even if it was independent the new commission would be consummated by Labour cronies just like the Families Commission was.

  1. Can someone let us know the new address for CYFWATCH as soon as they have it. I am not sure if it has been closed down for good or only temporary.
