Tuart Place’s initial submission to the WA Parliament’s Community Development and Justice Standing Committee focuses on one issue – that of descendants of the Stolen Generations being found ineligible for the National redress Scheme, despite their appalling abuse, and despite the extensive State Government intervention in their young lives. The reason for this sole focus is to highlight a disturbing trend affecting an increasing number of the most disadvantaged Aboriginal survivors in Western Australia. Our submission proposes two potential remedies for preventing a further injustice to people previously harmed while under case management by the Department.
