Dear Office For Children, Youth And Family Support - ACT,

I am in the process of writing a book, and would like to know the statistics of children and their mothers and grandparents, how many of all three have committed suicide after the children have been taken into care and away from their families.

I hope I can get an answer to my question as it is very important to my book.

Yours faithfully,

Deborah Wickham
