Calls for Minister to stand aside

state parliament

The State Opposition is calling on Goulburn MP and Minister for Family and Community Services Pru Goward to stand aside following the release of a damning report into the state of child protection in NSW.

Details were only made public, because a censure motion was successfully passed in the Upper House.

They had previously been kept secret for 18 months

The report found there were record numbers of children in out of home care, little accountability and oversight of agencies that work in ‘silos’ and poor long term outcomes for children in care with FACS.

Shadow Minister Tania Mihailuk says it's not good enough.
