a lot of children go under the radar because the system does not work.
I was in a well off family and removed from the family to foster care for 2 years.
Then when my mum passed away, I was returned to the man who has abused me, as my sole carer.
Great work DOCS, awesome.
I was highly neglected with my stepfather dissapearing for weeks on end leaving no money.
I called DOCS, I called the police ...and nothing.
So I fully support more money going in to saving children..but I fail to see how vouchers with a photo would have helped us?
No it wouldnt have.
He would be missing for weeks and when he was home, he would never have taken us shopping.
I was 15 so I didnt drive I used a local shop to buy noodles and milk and bread...
Would they give the voucher to me a minor? or the man that had loads of cash but was too off on cocaine to bother shopping.
