Too many complaints about CYFS

NZ Herald 22 Feb 07
The Children’s Commissioner has hired a new staff member to do nothing but deal with complaints about Child, Youth and Family. At the same time the Government has revealed that any complaints body or system would be within the Ministry of Social Development which has oversight of CYFS rather than being totally separate. At the social services select committee yesterday, Dr Cindy Kiro said the commission got about 400 inquiries a year about CYFS.
