The child protection system throughout Australia is utterly failing Australia's children. Children are abused, raped and some die. Children are ripped from their families, often for no sound reason. Children are placed in foster care or residential homes. Children who run away from residential care facilities often end up in youth detention centres - basically, put in jail.
The vast majority of caseworkers are not members of the Australian Association of Social Workers, a professional organisation for social workers. The result of this is that caseworkers are not subject to mandatory training, annual assessment and so on. It means that a person can hang up a shingle declaring themselves to be a social worker doing so with little knowledge, skills or experience. It seems that reunification with the parents is rarely given serious consideration.
