Staff Screening - Ensuring the well-being of people with disabilities <

The Commonwealth Government has introduced the National Disability Insurance Scheme Amendment (Worker Screening Database) Bill 2019 to establish an NDIS Worker Screening Database to support a nationally consistent approach to screening people who work with people with a disability in the NDIS, but it has failed to address the ability of unscreened people to work with people with disabilities if employed by an unregistered disability service provider or directly by a person with a self-managed funding package.

> Beyond Greed - Protecting Human Rights Online <

As technology has developed it has improved our ability to share information and be more connected. This has created many positive outcomes in our lives, but also has its negative side. It has also provided new tools to those that seek to do harm to others, including those who engage in child sexual abuse.

> Tanya Day: Remember her Name <
Ms Day was placed in a cell at the Castlemaine police station to sober up. She fell several times and hit her head during this time in the cell. By the end of the day, she had sustained an injury to her brain that led to her death in hospital seventeen days later.
