Desperate measures: The relinquishment of children with disability into state care in Victoria – May 2012

This report is based on the Commission’s research of the issues faced by families relinquishing children with disability into state care. Our research found that 50 or more families surrender the day-to-day care of their child with disability to the state each year because they cannot get access to the support they need to continue caring full time.
