When an expert witness is a Paediatrician and can make a diagnosis of MSBP, without seeing the Family or Children involved in the Care Proceedings, it just shows how Parents can experience miscarriages of Justice and forced adoption.

This professional is not adequately qualified to make such a diagnosis and if it wasn't for the expertise of our Clients Children Panel Solicitors, these three Children could be in three separate foster homes, siblings separated, all in the best interests of… Continue

This is happening all over the Country, the Family Courts are in meltdown, due to the increase in Care Proceedings, which in some parts of the UK is by as much as 75%.

One Local Authority has decided to drop 500 cases, due to the inability to safeguard vulnerable Children, due to the increase in caseloads.

There is a five to six month wait in the West Midlands for Guardians to be appointed; Guardians should be appointed within a week, of entering the Family Court arena.

MACKENZIE FRIENDS

A PAIN Client has had less than 24 hours notice, to prepare for a Family Court hearing tomorrow in Northampton.

24 hours notice is unacceptable, for us to get together,and submit a statement,and documentation about the criteria threshold,this is the second time in… Continue

There are already 17000, individuals wrongly registered by the Criminal Records Bureau, stated a recent Daily Telegraph Newspaper report.

PAIN has been campaigning for over a year now with regards to the injustice of some CRB disclosures.

In many Cases of alleged Child Abuse, Parents and Carers have their names vindicated, in some cases the Police and CPS, have no evidence, so cases are dropped, in a minority of cases Social Services decide to take no action.

Several months ago… Continue

E MAIL FROM CARE SPACE

I had the following e mail from care space.

POSTING ON CARE SPACE.

Hi, i notice you have posted a couple of messages on care space, i need to point out that care space is a forum for Social Workers,and other Social Care profeshionals to share information, with each other, it is not an appropriate forum for outside the profession, to air grievances about Social Workers.

One of my comments was a reply to a Social Worker, that had been accused of abuse by Parents.

The blog… Continue

There are well over 17000 individuals that have been wrongly registered by the Criminal Records Bureau, stated in a recent article by the Daily Telegraph.

Baroness Morgan, Junior Children's Minister mentioned several months ago that Teachers or Youth Workers, that have had unfounded… Continue

Another violation of Human Rights, it beggars belief, with how much power Social Services have in our lives.

They can take Babies away from Mothers, within hours of birth, on Emergency Protection Orders, with very little evidence to support such drastic action.

Vulnerable Children die, due to Local Authority failings and very few Social Workers are made accountable for shoddy practice.

And now a lovely Young couple want to marry and are being denied their happy day.

SURREY COUNTY COUNCIL DROP 500 CASES

Surrey County Council Social Services Department have dropped 500 cases, so that Social Workers can concentrate on protecting vulnerable Children.

Director of Children's Services Andy Roberts said that the large case number was put down to the… Continue

The total Local Authority's, that are failing with reference to their on the spot Ofsted inspections is now 21, with many more to come?

The three Social Services Departments in this report reveal grave concerns, from the basic updating of IT equipment and the failure of recording of such data on computer.

If the basic data base is not working properly, i hold very little hope, for the protection of vulnerable Children of this Country, especially to Children, that have their names on… Continue

I applaud, BASW, Chief executive Hilton Dawson, with reference to Martin Nareys comments in the Observer Newspaper, about taking more Babies into care at birth, the situation within the Family Courts at the moment is dire, with a waiting list for Guardians in some parts of the Country, is five months, which is leaving Children at risk of abuse, or even death and in the majority of cases, innocent Parents being apart from their Children, for a longer timescale.

Social Services, have enough… Continue
