Are the nspcc failing our children?
The British Public are inundated with graphic adverts of putting a ‘Full Stop’ to child abuse but the NSPCC like other agencies only learn of child abuse “after” it has taken place and a child lies in hospital with broken ribs or has fallen down the stairs or killed. Their disturbing advert says “this is child abuse”.” and then say they need more money. We say ‘rubbish’ grandparents with access can spot child abuse a mile off and it doesn’t cost a penny.

You could say the NSPCC are the charitable branch of social services. In fact every telephone call to the NSPCC helpline is recorded and in cases they deem as having the potential of “Abuse” are passed on to Social Services immediately. It is included in the small print of their “Privacy” facts published on their web-site.
The only people that have the best chance to recognise and put a “FULL STOP” to child abuse are ‘Grandparents’.
They are the people with the insight into their own family’s nature and capabilities. They would spot neglect signs quicker than any Social Service Department or organisation due to their special relationship with their Grandchildren.
A grandparent does not report abuse to social services lightly. Their fear is that social services will remove the kids altogether and statistics prove it is all too often the grandparents that are refused contact with them. This type of situation only ensures more suffering by the children due to complete separation from all family members, leaving the child unknowing whether they have caused this upset and separation.
FACT - It is children’s lives and future’s that are at stake here. In some cases our own.
