Comment on Questions raised about Alice kids in Don Dale during riot by Ally.

For those of us working within the youth services sector alongside some of these youth and their families we know this process is not adhered to prior to transfer to Don Dale.
We know the bare minimum of consent from any one of these parties is at times not gained.
We also know that at times consent is sought, the youth and their support services decline consent and the transfer proceeds regardless.
In one instance the youth reaching out stating “I don’t want to go up there, please don’t let them put me on the plane to Don Dale” moments before supports are informed he is soon to board a flight.
