National Party says CYF not up to professional standards now

National says a lack of professional standards sparked an attack by the head youth court judge on Child Youth and Family.

Judge Andrew Becroft yesterday described CYF’s handling of a 16-year-old offender as grossly unacceptable.

The boy went on a crime spree involving an attack with a weapon and threats to kill after a social worker failed to monitor him.

National’s Welfare Spokeswoman Anne Tolley says only 30 percent of front-line social workers are professionally registered.
