Govt prepares to release white paper on children
Wed, 25 Jul 2012 8:45a.m.
Over the last year the Government has been developing a strategy to support New Zealand’s most vulnerable children.
Later this year, a white paper will be released that will outline how the Government will do just that.
Social Development Minister Paula Bennett says the white paper will address all the recommendations made in a recent coroner’s report, and will go further.
Paula Bennett was interviewed by Rachel Smalley on Firstline – watch the full video.

Govt prepares to release white paper later this year. Because they think the abused children can wait until later this year. Caring govt.

Nearly all the high profile atrocities and general train wreck lives paraded across our front pages are broken adults who spent most of their early years in CYF care. All the worst statistics are generated from within CYF care. It must be addressed immediately . Break the cycle

Paula Bennett... a role model for our children??? really???
Didnt she raise a child on the dpb, and that child got involved with a gang member.. who then went to prison and Paula's child ended up being a dpb mum as well?.
Obviously knows what she is doing, not.
Child related abuse statistics always rise as a result of a National Government... things like Poverty and neglect also intensify.

It has been asked many times and not satisfactorily answered. What quantifies a "vulnerable child" and who makes them vulnerable?? The big question is how many times dose the Ministry of Social Development have these inquiries and find their own actions to be the main denominator, before it cleans up its own back yard.
