Summary It's one of the toughest decisions a parent could face: whether to hand over a child with profound disability to the care of the state. A report by the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission found that in Victoria alone, an average of 50 children are relinquished every year. With inadequate respite, many families of children with disabilities are struggling to cope. Will a new national disability insurance scheme make a difference? In an emotional and honest discussion, we hear from people with a disability, their families and the government about the extraordinary challenges they face. Producer: Meggie PalmerAssociate Producer: Hannah Meagher
