The allegations are revealed in a report published by Guardian for Children and Young People Penny Wright following interviews her office conducted between 2017 and 2019 with children and young people in state residential care.
According to the report, one young person said she was subjected to “significant and consistent threats to safety by residential care workers, particularly with regard to sexual safety” sometime between 2006 and 2016 when Families SA was the authority in charge of child protection in the state.
“This young person described several incidents of being sexually threatened by workers, including one worker saying he would like to get into bed with her,” the report states.
