Services Australia did not have the information requested.

Dear Department of Human Services,

I seek access to details of cases of child protection and child first that involved emotional abuse and/or neglect from 2005 onwards. In particular, details such as the number of reports made per year, the nature of these reports and outlines of these reports (the most that can be reasonably disclosed within the extent of the law), the demographics of these children and families, suburbs with the highest number of reports/cases, and the outcomes of these reports of emotional abuse and/or neglect cases. Details of the processes involved in these cases will also be of great assistance. All details requested are pertaining only to cases of emotional abuse and/or neglect. A comparison of this data of cases against data of physical and sexual abuse cases will also be greatly appreciated.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,
Adi Berry
