Welcome to another week.
As we continue on with our newly launched Voice of the Child Podcasts, we’d like to hear your thoughts on the programme.
The series focuses on law and policy which affect children, including forced adoption, foster care, child protection proceedings and a wide range of current affairs.
What would you like us to cover?
Do you have a tip?
How can we make the programme better?
If you haven’t had a chance to listen to the Voice of the Child, you can catch the current episodes on Sound Cloud.

But children in care have NO VOICE !! Free Speech for children is non existent !
For so many the process is the same……….
At around 6.30 am squads of uniformed police arrive at their homes to take them to strangers for foster care.
On arrival, their mobile phones and laptops/:tablets are confiscated so as to isolate them from family and friends.
When parents are eventually allowed to visit they are not allowed to discuss coming home,the court case,or any sexual or physical abuse they have suffered in care.If they are of foreign origin they are obliged to speak in English to their parents and their siblings.Any other language is forbidden even if their command of English is poor or non existent..
Voice of the child…………. What voice???
