Sharing Vulnerable Children’s Details Online – Are UK Fostering Agencies Feeding Child Trafficking?

The parental responsibility side going ignored? What if the parents don’t understand their rights? Are these children being exploited online? Parents still maintain PR right up until/if an adoption order gets made. An adoption decision is only a decision and the parents last chance to hold on to their PR for their child/ren xx

Researching Reform

An adoption agency has taken the unusual step of explaining why it chose to publicly advertise two vulnerable siblings, after sharing photo and video footage of the brother and sister in an online newspaper. The private details were shared in an attempt to find foster parents for the children.

The invasive practice, which allows vulnerable children’s details to be shared worldwide, often draws criticism from the public. Reformers and child rights groups are also growing increasingly concerned about the exposure the practice offers grooming gangs and child traffickers.

Interestingly, the piece in the Evening Post does not explain why adoption agency Caritas Care felt the need to explain its actions. The decision may stem around the often aggressive public reaction to making information about vulnerable children widely available online and in print. And for good reason: the practice is widespread and poorly regulated, and is in direct breach of a…

Researching Reform was very kindly invited to the House of Lords by new Social Work England Chair, Lord Patel, to discuss social work in England and what families and children felt about it, as service users.

We met with Lord Patel yesterday, who shared updates on Social Work England’s progress with us, as well as his vision for the sector and his views on the current problems it faces.

Ombudsman Decisions Reveal Startling Number Of Complaints Against Social Workers

Researching Reform

The Local Government Obudsman – which is now calling itself the Local Government And Social Care Ombudsman – has just released the latest set of complaints lodged with the organisation, which show a large volume of complaints against social workers in child welfare cases.

The allegations include dishonest behaviour by social workers, unjust treatment of families, as well as errors and deliberate lying in child welfare and child protection hearings and court reports.

The Ombudsman has also released two reports about the way councils have treated Special Guardians. The first is entitled, “Ombudsman finds council’s special guardian policy left scores of families out of pocket,” whilst the second is called, “Ombudsman challenges councils to ensure appropriate support provided for special guardians.”

We’re adding summaries of the complaints below, many of which were not resolved by the Ombudsman, either due to the case not being within their jurisdiction or because…

“What this government is doing to poor families is atrocious – We shouldn’t add to that awfulness by taking people’s children away.”

Steve Goodman, made the comments at a Frontline Leadership Event. Goodman told the audience:

“What this government is doing to poor families is atrocious. The food banks, the rubbish private housing, the precarious employment position of people is awful. But that does not mean we should add to that awfulness by taking people’s children away when we don’t need to… People’s lives are worse, that doesn’t mean that we need to compound that”.

Reference Book, first book

via Michelle Simmons: “Explaining Illegal Kidnap To A Child 2018” PDF file – Tum Mum Michele Simmons UPLOADED BY T. Simmons – 24 May 2018

A simplistic easy reference book which is colour coded for ease and written to help the reader to further basic research, using my book as a starting point. With plenty of hints and tips to help you understand the basics of family law, and what your solicitor is unlikely to share with you; although they are there to fully represent you as their client. For anyone interested in taking a peek into the world of forced adoption and likewise for anyone who may need the support. It will teach you the basics and when up against brick walls and is written through personal experience, although i am not a lawyer. Likewise, children who are gillick competent (frasier competent) will be able to understand my book and the basic contents written, because it is a reference book more than anything, which teaches you to learn yourself and expand your knowledge. Before you know it you will be better informed and armed with the basics and more besides from your own research. I am from the UK and this is my first book. This book is a book which gives you the seeds to help your knowledge grow. It is a book to help you to help yourself.
With many thanks to Butlincat for helping me to get this out there, to help families who may need it Xx
