Quick Exit

Ms EM will give evidence of her time in foster care, including the abuse and neglect she suffered at several placements. At one home, Ms EM suffered sexual abuse and made complaints to her social worker about it, but this was not responded to adequately. The perpetrator would later be convicted of sexual offences against minors. Ms EM will also share her experiences with the redress process, her interactions with government departments, and recommendations to improve the future care system.
