A British social worker who spent six months with Child Youth and Family has spoken out against the department, claiming its processes are unethical.
Jonny Ward worked for CYF in South Auckland but left his job in protest, saying families were broken apart unnecessarily.
"What I wasn't happy with was lack of involvement with parents, parents not being informed when being questioned at school, children being removed without parents being aware that was going to happen. Just a lack of involvment with parents," says Ward.
