Days after ABC reported on the story of Ashley *, who says two of her children were abused by their stepfather, child safety authorities have finally taken a step to intervene and move another child and Ashley’s mother to another location.

Tasmanian child safety authorities held a meeting yesterday after the history of ABC was published and said a new caseworker would be assigned to Ashley’s child.

But this morning, Ashley said staff told her she would not get a new caseworker because “they have capacity and do not have staff”.

So this afternoon, she was told that her child and her mother had been moved to another location while the ward was working through the situation.

Ashley has previously told of how child safety in Tasmania advised her to sign her parental rights more than ten years ago when she woke up from a coma and struggled to take care of herself. She had also previously struggled with mental health issues triggered by a violent relationship.
