Changes to how child protection will be run in NT

No frontline jobs will be lost and there will be no forced redundancies, says Minister

 

UPDATED October 11, 9.14pm

 

Children and Families Minister, Robyn Lambley is putting her stamp on the portfolio with changes announced today to how those responsibilities will sit within government.  The Department of Children and Families will integrate with the Department of Education and Department of Health.  The Office of Children and Families will be established within the newly named Department of Education and Children’s Services. However, Ms Lambley is ignoring expert advice with its announced changes, according to the NT Opposition.  Shadow Minister for Children and Families Natasha Fyles says a key recommendation of the Bath Inquiry's 2010 Growing them strong, together report  was to establish a stand-alone agency, the Department of Children and Families, to oversee and implement the reforms.
