Beautiful, four-month-old baby Ebony had 48 healing fractures when she was found dead at her home, failed by a system designed to protect her. “We need to ensure it cannot and does not happen again,” says our CEO Dr. Joe Tucci. “We need to be absolutely clear on what constitutes cause for serious concern around the safety of children and the resources, support and capability to act to protect them. The foster care system needs more support and resourcing to keep children safe.” Listen to Dr. Tucci’s interview with our Ambassador, Kim Napier.
