My ex wife has lost custody over 4 children, one of witch is my biological daughter, Jess witch I have 50% custody over.
The department of community services NSW child protection caseworker  from DoCS Orange failed to notify me until 3 weeks after the children were taken.
In this phone call the reason for taking so long to contact me was rather contradictory, at the start of the phone call I was told She had only just thought about it and should call me, then a little later she said they had tried to contact me with no avail,
then later in that same conversation I was told I was not

Representatives of 25 organisations across the state have written to Family and Community Services Pru Goward to warn her of concerns that proposed changes to adoption laws, which may include the forced removal of some children, could

FACS NSW - Staff crisis leaves foster children in limbo

Up to 60 foster children and their carers have been left in limbo after a caseworker staffing crisis at a Family and Community Services centre in northern NSW.

The manager of out-of-home care at the Ballina community services centre has not been replaced after going on urgent leave and a caseworker responsible for 36 foster children moved to a new role last month with no substitute found.

Barbara Michel, a co-ordinator with foster care support group Connecting Carers, described the office as a ''ghost town''.

The 60 children are being transferred from the care of the Department of Family and

Two Agencies in the Hunter

on Sun, 09/22/2013 - 09:45

I don't have all names yet, but will post when I do. One community services branch putting in a  report, based on the lies of their own child (yes they are parents of a child in the same school as mine).

The other community services branch, let's say half an hour away, conducting the inquiry, and based on where the initial "report" came from, releasing absolutely no information, even the original allegation through FOI to protect their own workers.

DoCS NSW minister responsible for not looking after families in the community

I think everyone on here should email their stories of children being stolen by DoCS to today tonight.

I have spoken to DoCS ACT and they said if my case was in ACT they would not be doing what DoCS NSW is. I had a former DoCS worker from Samaritans, she was former Department of Human Services Victoria (DHS Vic) worker from Melbourne transferred to Wong DoCS and left docs NSW as she said she could not believe how DoCS NSW runs, they just remove kids instead of meeting real needs. She took a 20,000 pay cut as she could not be party to what NSW DoCS do to families.

Internal documents obtained by Fairfax Media show that seven of the 14 caseworkers who failed to achieve a pass when they applied for the role of team leader were already acting in the more senior position.

Illawarra Mercury Report on the Bomb Scare at DoCS Woollongong

It was a bomb hoax, nothing less, done by DoCS themselves. Dispicable predatory act from masters of bullying.

Number of Woollongong DoCS staff and related agencies involved who were corrupt is still under hands of tribunal but on my count 15-24 people directly involved in the matter, not allowed to disclose names at present.

In relation to the complaints line pfft yes i rang them over a dozen tiime, no real response there are still over 172 complaints.

Dad Writes To School About Social Progression And Diversity Within The Community

Social progress, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.

For instance, we like to think that Australia is less racist than it was. Considering the heritage of terra nullius and the White Australia policy, there is some validity to that belief; after all, the Federation of Australia may have been founded on notions of egalitarianism and racism, but racism has since been superseded by multiculturalism.

In previous years, going back to 2008, television programs such as SBS Insight have explored the issues surrounding child protection using a range of panellists, including former foster children or children who had in some way experienced the system, representatives from NSW DOCS and DHS Victoria, case workers and psychologists.

Mostly, there is a general consensus from those directly affected by the Foster Care System on a number of points:

1) The system is corrupt and not coping in most states and is therefore not meeting the needs of
