A large amount of noise and malicious rhetoric has been directed at me for claiming the invalids benefit from a government that I continually criticize. I have tried my best to seek employment in the area of reuniting families so the children are not stressed, however my efforts and training programmes were all a waste of time as the fob off bureaucratic paper trail proves. The gender bias and totally unfair government will not think outside the square and try and seek common sense alternatives that strive for mediation rather than lengthy litigation in the sordid world of the Family Court gravy train of misery. I do not allow the unlawful gender discrimination by a radical feminist government to deter my objective and I am currently supporting, fathers, mothers, gran mums, gran dads and several children trapped in the coldly callous and confusing world of the Kangaroo Court system and a dangerously dysfunctional CYFS.
Anyway, at least I tried to get a job. I hate being unemployed as I can offer New Zealand so much, but whatever here is a fob off paper trail that proves I tried to gain meaningful and constructive employment.

Mainstream Supported Employment Programme
I am pleased to confirm as a result of the application recently made on your behalf by Adie McLaughlin of Workbridge, you are now eligible to participate in the Mainstream Supported Employment Programme. The eligibility is valid for 12 months, unless you become employed for more than 15 hours a week during this time.
Mainstream Placements are arranged by disability sector agencies such as Workbridge, and not by the State Services Commission. This means it is the role of Adie McLachlan to negotiate the possibility of a Mainstream placement with a potential employer on your behalf. You should discuss your employment preferences with Adie McLachlan. Please be patient because finding a placement can take several months.
Mainstream eligibility does not necessarily guarantee that a position will be found for you by Workbridge. Although there are several State sector organisations eligible to employ Mainstream participants, they are no obligation to do so. The number of people on the Mainstream Programme has grown considerably recently, as the number of people approved for eligibility. This has put pressure on the availability of placements.
Please note that funding will not be reserved for individual prospective Mainstream participants because, placement can, and often does, take some time to organise.
If placement is negotiated, Adie McLachlan will notify you and also complete the remaining Mainstream paperwork. A letter and information pack from the Mainstream Programme will then be sent to you.
My best wishes to you in the meantime
Mainstream Programme Manager.

I refer to your letter 12 March 2007, and subsequent conversation with Wendy Rabbidge our Social Development Manager.
Thank you for enquiry about the possibility of establishing a position that would provide mediation between clients and government agencies through the Mainstream supported Employment Programme.
We have now explored possible options, and wish to advise that unfortunately we are not able to assist you. However, I understand from your conversations with Wendy that you have a particular interest in the judicial area, so would suggest that you approach the Department of Corrections and Ministry Of Justice about opportunities they may have available.
We would also strongly encourage you to talk with staff at Workbridge about other alternatives.
Again, I would like to thank you for your enquiry, and we wish you all the best in securing employment within your area of interest.
Regional Commissioner for Social Development.

Enclosed is a copy of a position description for a Family Court Co-ordinator role, for your information. I have provided this to give you an indication of the types of roles the Ministry has that may be of interest you given your background and expertise.
