Scotlands's homeless population has soared to an all-time high, with the Executive's new policy on vagrancy prompting homeless applications from one in every 100 Scots.

An analysis by The Scotsman reveals the number officially counted as homeless by Scotland’s 32 local authorities has doubled over the last 10 years and jumped by 24 per cent since devolution.

Like the growing numbers passing through social services each month, Crowe is up against a wall that is a distinct structure of the poor. By losing her home, she's lost the privilege of choice.

Jolly said DSS does not place people but rather determines what rent amount they are entitled to. The agency will find them a home, he said. But people are free to search for an apartment on their own, as long as it does not cost more than the rent voucher. Crowe found an apartment in Middletown that was $114 per month more than the $735 that DSS allotted her.

A Lapdancer called Peaches stripped off for a customer who slipped 20 pounds in her G-string - unaware he was an undercover government investigator.

Julieanne Beecher earned up to 300 pounds a week dancing for businessmen at the same time as claiming state benefits. And a DSS fraud detective was sent on a secret mission to mingle with male customers at The Fantasy Lounge.

The deaths of three children in Rock Hill at the hands of at least one of their parents have prompted an audit of the Department of Social Services.

The board that runs the state Legislative Audit Council voted Wednesday to review how DSS handles child abuse and neglect cases, internal investigations and disciplinary actions. DSS was investigating the Meza family last August when the mother, father and three children died. Authorities say the children were drugged and their throats slit by either their mother, father or both parents. Their York County home was set on fire and the parents then died in the blaze, deputies said.

A California-based non-profit law firm is considering bringing legal action against the Clark County Department of Family Services for allegedly failing to provide children in foster care adequate services.

The law firm, the National Center for Youth Law, has been investigating the county's child protective services for about three months and says it has found a variety of problems in the county system.

A low-cost, hospital-based parent education program can reduce the incidence of abusive head injuries caused by shaken baby syndrome by nearly 50 percent.

Nurses at the hospitals were trained by nurse educators to provide pamphlets, discuss them with parents and show a short video. Nurses were to specifically seek out fathers or father-figures who are more often involved in shaken baby syndrome cases. The parents were then asked to sign commitment statements, which also gathered demographic and other information about the responders.

The case of an 8-year-old boy detained this month on a rape charge has highlighted a sharp increase in the number of juvenile sex offenders handled by Clark County authorities.

In 1999, there were 169 children in the county's Department of Juvenile Justice Services probation caseload, officials said. On Monday, there were 336. "I think the general public would be very, very surprised at the number of juvenile sex offenders we have, and also shocked and dismayed at the nature of the sex offenses," Chief Deputy District Attorney Teresa Lowry told the Las Vegas Sun.

Pitcairn Island presents a special challenge to social workers sent from New Zealand on three-month rotations to deal with the aftermath of last year's trials, educating the islanders about sex abuse.

The newcomers, sent in pairs, depend on locals to be housed and fed. But they can't be matey; every conversation, even the most casual, could become crucial. There's precious little privacy and few home comforts on an island half the size of Waiheke, 5300km east of New Zealand. It has no harbour, sealed roads, sewage treatment or reliable electricity. Further complicating the scene is that the six men found guilty of abusing women and girls remain free. Their convictions and sentences are suspended while legal argument continues on whether British law applies to Pitcairn.
