Conditions imposed on Wundarra Services
CONDUCTING police background checks on employees is one of 11 conditions that has been imposed on Wundarra Services.
The conditions are the result of a review into the out-of-home care provider by the Office of Children's Guardian.
The review follows a spate of alleged incidents on the Coffs Coast including the alleged rape of a 13-year-old resident by her support worker and the alleged rape of a seven-year-old by a juvenile resident in Moonee Beach last year.
In March, the alleged incidents were raised in NSW Parliament by Coffs Harbour MP Andrew Fraser and sparked Minister for Family and Community Services Brad Hazzard announcing an investigation into the agency.
Conditions Wundarra Services will have to comply with include not providing residential care to children with a history of sexual offending and conducting and verifying police and working with children checks for relevant employees.
Wundarra will also have to notify the Children's Guardian when the agency receives an allegation of sexual misconduct or serious physical assault towards a child committed by a child-related worker.
It comes as Mr Fraser told The Advocate he would again raise the agency's operations in NSW Parliament this week.
He said he had received evidence of recent incidents involving Wundarra since the review was launched and questioned why State Government funding had been extended to the agency.
An Office of Children's Guardian spokeswoman confirmed Wundarra Service's five year accreditation status remains in place but will expire in January, 2018.
