FOSTER CARE — MONITORED
1172. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the Leader of the House representing
the Minister for Child Protection:
I refer to the article ''The
ghost list: Foster kids languishing in a 'broken' system''
published by WAtoday on 27 September 2019.
(1) Is the minister
aware that the acting assistant director general was quoted as saying that ''strict
guidelines are in place for children appearing on the monitored list and
compliance with these guidelines are examined closely''?
(2) Will the
minister table the guidelines referred to by the acting assistant director
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
(1) Yes, I am aware of that quote.
(2) I table the
attached Department of Communities ''Casework Practice Manual'' paragraphs
2.2.5 and 4.1.8, which outlines policies and governance procedures regarding
the monitored list across the state.
[See paper 3283.]
