The latest child welfare items that should be right on your radar:
- Lawmakers Support Public Hanging For Paedophiles (Pakistan)
- Former monk who sexually abused boys as young as nine jailed for more than 20 years (England)
- State’s first conviction for coercive control handed down in Donegal Circuit Court (Ireland)
- Strict new measures to protect vulnerable children in care (England and Wales)
Many thanks to Catherine for sharing the third item with us.

The sad thing is that children in care are actually FORBIDDEN to report abuse in care to their parents at contact and police are not obliged to take statements from older children in care who report it or even from their relatives .
Once a written statement has been taken there must be an investigation and for some people “that would never do”.

This may be ok for some Children in Care but it wont scratch the surface of the thousands of children in foster care and on a SGO who have nasty carers who cut off the parents and domineer the children they look after.
