  1. The key ethical issues presented in the scenario; 
  2. The legal considerations of the scenario and,  
  3. The most appropriate way to respond and manage the situation.

Ethical Scenario 1 

You work within a social housing framework and most frequently work alongside service users who are  seeking more permanent accommodation due to issues pertaining to domestic and family violence,  substance use or mental illness or a combination of all factors. You have been working alongside a middle aged man which a history of alleged child related, violent, sexual offences,mental illness and substance use  issues. He has been on a wait list for a substantial amount of time, for housing and has finally been offered  a property for rent. You have been requested to view the property with him and ensure that it meets his  needs and that it would be an appropriate residence. Upon looking at the address, you notice that a close  friend of yours, with 4 small children (under 10 years of age) lives within a block of this house. You are  immediately concerned for the wellbeing of your friends children, due to your knowledge of this man's  previous court matters and currently proceeding allegations regarding child sex offences. At this point, there  are no Orders in place which prohibit or restrict where he lives and the allegations against him have not yet  been heard by the court.  

As requested, please outline: 

  1. The key ethical issues presented in the scenario; (approximately 100-200 words)
  2. The legal considerations of the scenario (approximately 100-200 words) 
  3. The most appropriate way to respond and manage the situation (approximately 200-300 words). 

Ensure that your response is clear and outlines information pertaining to all three key areas listed above.  

Ethical Scenario 2 

Mr George is an 58 year old man who is living with Parkinson's Disease and degenerative vision and  hearing loss. Mr George also has Down's Syndrome and has been living in a supported accommodation  unit on Yergon Street, with 3 of his closest friends for 29 years. Mr George loves his service provider and  enjoys his weekly bowling, men's craft activities and Saturday morning movies with his co-tenants. You  have been informed by the service provider that, due to Mr Georges degenerating health condition and  increased support needs, he is being moved to a Residential Aged Care Facility where he will have better  access to medically equipped staff who are able to respond to his declining health and increased need for  support. The service have advised you that he may take the news of this move difficultly and that your role  is to support the service by providing an unfailing conviction that this is the right thing for Mr George. The  service has explained that they have already accepted another service user to move into the room that Mr  George will be vacating, so the move is non-negotiable. Mr George's daughter, Libby, is his decision-maker  but she is rarely around and has only visited him twice in the last 2 years. Libby has provided consent for  the accommodation and service provision change to occur, but hasn't consulted with Mr George at all.  

Since finding out about the move and change, Mr George has not spoken and has lapsed into a morbid  depression. He is constantly crying and wandering around his home yelling 'why you move me, why am I  bad, what have I done wrong now?' You have tried to explain the reasons for the move and the benefits he  will notice as a result, but he is very upset and unable to be convinced that this is positive. He is begging  you to contact his sister and urge her to change her mind. He has asked you tell her all the wonderful things  he does on Yergon Street and to make her tell the service that they are not to move him. He keeps  reminding you that if his sister changes her mind, then they cannot force him to move as she is his  decision-maker. You like Mr George a lot and you feel that this move will be detrimental to his wellbeing  and completely crush his spirit. 

As requested, please outline: 

  1. The key ethical issues presented in the scenario; (approximately 100-200 words)
  2. The legal considerations of the scenario (approximately 100-200 words) 
  3. The most appropriate way to respond and manage the situation (approximately 200-300 words).

Ensure that your response is clear and outlines information pertaining to all three key areas listed above.


Scenario 1

Answer 1. The key ethical issues need to consider in the given case scenario includes a middle-aged man who has a part where he was alleged with issues related to the child, sexual offences, substance and child-related issues, and mental illness is also diagnosed. The court has not given any orders to prohibit him, which allows living wherever he wants too as these are only allegations and no crime is proved. The place he is considering to live is near a friend's house which arises a concern about his children but, no right allows to warn the friend against the person, or ask the person to not to move in there to live (Greiff, Holt, & Funke, 2013). 


Answer 2. The legal acts and laws that need to consider the present case scenario includes the following acts and policies:-

  • Mental Health Act 2000 (QLD)
  • Privacy and Confidentiality Act (1988) 
  • Child Protection Act 1999 (QLD)
  • Housing Act 2003 (QLD)
  • Anti-Discrimination Act 1991 (QLD)
  • Workplace Health and Safety 2011 (QLD) 
  • Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (CTH)
  • Duty of Care 

Answer3. The best way to handle the situation is to inform the supervisor about the history of the person in question. It is important to inform the supervisor about the allegation he has pending in the court, and if any of the pending allegations get proved, then the person has to move from the place he is considering for living. I would raise my concern regarding the locality the person is sent to consider as it is a place where families with kids are living like my friend who lives with his four kids all under ten years of age. With the history of the allegation, it is unethical to consider sending such person to live there. I will also tell the supervisor that it is the right of the person to live wherever he wants to. Another point which I will raise with my supervisor to consider my safety, as I was sent with a person who has criminal records in pending. Such people may harm anyone, and if next, I have to go with someone for any job, then safety precautions need to be taken to avoid any issues. I would ask my supervisor to let a senior representative look into the issue as he may have a different point of view for handling the situation and better solution could be taken (Preston-Shoot, & McKimm, 2012).
