80% Children Seriously Injured or Killed are Missed by the National Child Protection Register
Social services failures are not a modern day occurance with the deaths of children from social service failures dating back as far as the 40’s but what alarms is nothing has changed in over 6 decades with failures inceasing as children slip through the net and end up dead.
With more and more parents resorting to child abuse and murder 80% go undetected by social services , police, health professionals, NSPCC and various other bodies have failed to either notice the warning signs, communication failures or fail to listen to other people’s growing concerns. Children seriously injured or died bringing about serious local authority cases between 2005 and 2007 showed 33 out of 189 children were on the register. An increase in 2005 - 2007 of 17% from the previous 2 years of 2003 - 2005 and between 2003 -2005 45% of children seriously injured or killed were not known to Social Services but likely to of been known by other public authorities.
Between 2005 - 2007 most of the serious cases were babies under one and almost a quarter were younger than 6 months whilst a quarter were over 11 years old and a sagnificant number aged 16 - 18. Suicides following abuse, missing children are included.
The government and it’s system have failed children not only in care where last year alone saw 950 children missing some feared dead and yet the government and local authorities are not exploring what happened to these vunerable children in the care of Social Services. The most vunerable children across the country let down by local authorities and they have learnt nothing in 60 years. Millions of pounds later, extensive training and with so many guidelines many are misinterpreted, ignored or misused by the very carers and social workers themselves and yet with very little come back because complaints are handled by the department complained about as seen in a recent case in Islington Social Services and many others across the nations Social Services.
Social workers go on wild goose chases of innocent families hunting down any reason to back up their notion that the parent is always wrong even in accidental injuries such as injuries when on family trips where parents have no history of violence or mental health. Parents where one child is a school truent are also targeted and those social workers spend alot of time targeting innocent parents as they hunt down any kind of information in what is almost an obsession to prove the parents have abused when in many cases protected by the family courts the child hasn’t been abused or neglected. Because of the secret family courts methods those innocent parents are unable to prove their innocence because social workers and judges ensure they are not able to seek such evidence leaving the families at the mercy of Social workers intent on taking their children. We are seeing a daily trend now of social workers misusing their positions even in cases where they simply don’t like the parents or think they have something to hide. Doctors are getting it wrong regularly too but no one is able to question the professionals because the family courts believe the parents are always wrong regardless.
This is a very dangerous practice by Social workers because whilst they are targeting innocent families they are ignoring the children who do need help which reflects in the 80% of children seriously abused or killed undetected by social workers. The sooner the family courts are opened the truth will come out and for all those uneccessary forced adoptions where social workers have got it wrong the law should account for their mistakes and return those children to their rightful parents. Social Services need to start concentrating on the 80% they miss.
With all the internal problems and constant crisitisism social workers have gone from one extreme to the other in a mad frenzy to beat off what they percieve to be harsh judgements against them.
Hundreds of parents have been stripped of their children for no genuine reason and their children adopted out never to be seen by the parents again.. Many parents are not being given their rights even with the SGO as social workers are ensuring the rules are not followed.The social workers in many cases like this are content to cause so much trouble for the innocent that they do miss the real dangers in their quest
During the Haringey trial of Baby P a mother was targeted by Haringey social workers and they tried to take her 2 hour baby away when they havent even bothered to check on the ex partner who abused children and now has more children unchecked and probably at risk.
Social services failures in Haringey where Baby P died at the hands of his abusive mother, her boyfriend and the lodger (related to BF) will remain a future problem because with all the investigations they may hold you can guarantee not one review will learn anything because they refuse to listen to those that can help or at the very least give them valuable insite. Sadly the likes of Ed Balls do not make a difference.
