Monique made this Freedom of Information request to Department of Social Services

Department of Social Services did not have the information requested.

From: Monique

Delivered

Dear Department of Social Services,
I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information act 1982.

I wish to make an informal request for information and/or supporting documents regarding the deaths of children covered/investigated by child protective services in all states.
I would like to obtain information on the number of children under the age of 14 who were removed from their parents due to neglect, abuse, domestic violence and/or drug abuse who then died after being replaced in the care of their parents.

Kind regards,

Monique Dalby
