I’ve 2 sisters in permanent care under Doc’s Victoria, while living in Sydney ourselves, a 4,5 yr old with Down syndrome and a 8yr old with RAD and severe behaviour problem. We have them under a guardianship order now, so no more case workers. The allowance for carers under Doc’s Victoria is lower and we never even got extra funding for our youngest with a disability. We pay so much for psychologists and psychiatrist for our 8yr old. I do a course at Redbank house now for Reparative Parenting, which thankfully is free of charge.
