Are the nspcc failing our children?

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.

The horror of today’s news (quote) Three children killed by abuse in
England EVERY week, Baby P probe reveals. Full story:- Three children killed by abuse in England EVERY week, Baby P probe reveals | Mail Online is proof enough and with all the money in the world thay are failing our children.

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.

Grandparents are not recognised in Statute as “Relevant Persons” are classed as not important enough to play a part in their grandchildren’s lives. They are often ignored when they do report troubling situations and concerns and are not entitled to be notified by social services when their grandchildren are in trouble.

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.

    Tim Loughton: Let me finish and I certainly will.

    In support of its claim, the NSPCC cites the fact that 29 children were killed over the past 10 years during contact visits to non-resident parents. That is an appalling figure. However, it ignores its own research, which shows that over the same period some 800 children have died at the hands of resident parents or carers, and the 2000 publication "Child Maltreatment in the UK", which showed that violent treatment was more likely to be meted out by female carers than male ones.
