A day after the ABC reported on the story of Ashley*, who says two of her children were abused by their step-grandfather, child safety officials have acknowledged another child still in the custody of Ashley’s mother should “not be there.”

Officials held a meeting yesterday after the ABC’s story and a new case worker has been assigned, but nothing has been done to remove Ashley’s son from the care of his grandmother.

Ashley has previously told of how child safety in Tasmania advised her to sign over her parental rights more than a decade ago when she awoke from a coma and struggled to look after herself. She had also previously struggled with mental health issues triggered by an abusive relationship.
