The main purpose of the Committee to Expose the Public Trustee is exactly that – to expose the Public Trustee. We want to shed some light on the reality of people caught up in the guardianship system. To that end we have decided to publish some personal stories.
Some of our members have been willing to share their stories. Others do not want to compromise their privacy. Others are fearful of retribution that would be suffered by their loved ones if they spoke out. Amongst our committee there are many more nightmare stories than are presented here and we know there are many, many more in Queensland.
If you would like to help us expose the Public Trustee and share your experience of Queensland’s adult guardianship system you are very welcome to do so. Please post your story in the comment section below. Comments here are moderated and will not appear immediately.
If you do tell your story, please do not include any information that identifies yourself, your loved one or any officer of the guardianship system. We will check your stories for this before publishing, other than that you can say what you like.
