Recent survey revealed that more than 25,000 assumed child abuse cases are not investigated in Victoria each year.
The people who are working for child protection organizations are frequently ignoring neglect and violent abuse. In addition, suspected sexual and physical abuse is often not properly examined.
This clearly indicates flaw in the operating system that might lead to deaths of several innocent children.
According to the statistical data, nearly 38,205 cases of assumed abuse have been reported to Victoria’s child protection services in the year from July 2005. But unfortunately, only 12,000 have been investigated so far.
The government had delivered an $18.9 million funding in 2004 to boost over four years to expand a successful program to reduce child abuse and neglect in Victoria. However, the amount has not been properly used in this regard.
