.Child care orders 'take over a year"
VULNERABLE children are having to wait more than a year before being taken into care, Barnardo's says. They are forced to remain in potentially abusive homes because of 'unnecessary delays ~ caused by a string of extra expert assessments and a lack of credence given to social workers, said Martin Narey the charity’s executive. Unresolved cases soared by 50 per cent last year to 12,994, claimed Barnardo's, which called for a 30 week limit on proceedings. A panel of experts leading a review of the system 'shares Barnardo's concerns'.
It's the panel of so called experts that we are worried about.
Who’e obvious best interests is this?. Bernardo’s are short of cash and on a fund raising drive.
