Daniel Andrews Premier Victoria

Brothers and sisters should be able to stay together if they have to go into Out of Home Care.
If they can't live with their parents, Carers who are extended family or Foster Care should be provided with the means and support to care for the children as a family.

In the past Govt and Welfare Agencies systematically separated children to make them easier to control, the Stolen Generation and Forgotten Australians, leading to thousands of Australians not knowing where their siblings went or where they are now, for their whole lives.  This was a disaster for each and every child separated, and this practice needs to be outlawed.  
Children who are isolated from siblings, extended family and moved around alone by Govt and Welfare Agencies are At Risk and extremely vulnerable.  
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child needs to be IMPLEMENTED in Child Welfare practices in Victoria, so that the needs of the Child are always the primary consideration.
This petition is to support changes to the Children and Young Persons Act 2005 to reform Child Protection, Childrens Services and Service Provider PRACTICES so that siblings can stay together.

Yours sincerely Helen Dawson
