Vulnerable children forced into homelessness as local authorities routinely ignore child protection laws

Exclusive: Families forced to spend nights in A&E waiting rooms, night buses and police stations after being denied emergency housing by local councils

Vulnerable children are being forced into homelessness because local authorities are routinely flouting child protection laws, lawyers and charities have warned.

Families with young children have been denied emergency accommodation by their local council and subsequently forced out onto the streets, spending nights in A&E waiting rooms, night buses and police stations.

Under the laws set out in the Children’s Act, local authorities are legally obliged to provide accommodation for minors, to prevent vulnerable children ending up on the streets.

  1. What a perfect excuse for the local authority to claim that the parents are unable to look after the children and so take them for the adoption market.

    ‘The UK is the ONLY country in Europe (apart from Croatia and perhaps Portugal) to tolerate the practice of forced adoption’. It is the ‘severing of all contact FOR LIFE between children and their birth parents’.

    In effect, ‘a LIFE sentence without the opportunity of being heard by a jury, often imposed on parents who have committed no crime but who are said to be a risk to their children following predictions by “experts” working closely with the local authority’.

    Even worse, ‘the UK is the ONLY country in the world to GAG parents who wish to protest publicly when their children are taken’. See Select Committee link of Ian Josephs below.

    ‘Forced adoption’ is the very well worn and established model that Local Authorities use and not least by Rotherham’s Children’s Services. Ian Thomas has had nothing to say about it. Ever wondered why there are more social workers than there are GPs and Thomas has recruited lots on higher than national average salaries.

    Forced adoption targets are set down annually for LAs for ‘adopting children out’ and a ‘bounty’ is paid on each child’s head and comes back in as ‘income’. Heartbreaking cases are happening right under our noses and lives destroyed for good.

    A result of tardy and misguided processes with social workers keen to break up famiies by hitting ‘adopting out’ targets, rather than support and remediate for the situations in families may have found themselves to be in.

    Processes are less than effective and often are in conflict with protecting childen, they not only destroy children’s lives for good but their birth families including grandparents. Dame Louise Casey had a lot to say about RMBC in her ‘Inspection of RMBC in 2015′, where on page 63 of her report she stated;

    “Through their action or inaction, many senior managers and Councillors
    have allowed failings to persist over long periods of time “

    Thank goodness for Brendan Fleming and Ian Josephs who are experts on forced adoption, secret family courts, British Social Services or social workers or any related issues. They continue to reel against the cruel and outdated methods used and the destruction of children and their birth families’ lives.

    Rotherham MPs, Ian Thomas and Gordon Watson say nothing or make representation of families in crisis or offer support. Their silence is deafening. Forced Adoption is acknowledged behind closed doors but no one is prepared to stop the travesties of justice that continue to take place for all the wrong reasons. Casey would be likely to find that little has changed.

    Steer clear of those solicitors on the ‘recommended’ list given out to ‘estranged’ parents by Social Services as these often ‘work hand in glove’ with the council in a variety of ways so be warned.
