Welcome to another week.

The Children and Families Truth Commission  (CFCTC) published the first ever human rights-focused survey for children and families going through Britain’s child protection system in November, and the deadline for completing the questionnaire is tomorrow.

The survey will stop accepting submissions on Tuesday 28th February, 2023, so please access it before midnight of the 28th if you’re planning on completing it.

Produced in collaboration with child-protection experienced parents, it has received hundreds of responses so far and will be used to investigate which families’ and children’s human rights have been violated by the child protection system, and how they are being violated.

The survey asks families in Britain about their experiences of children’s social care and the courts, including times when they felt that their human rights were not supported. It uses clear and straightforward language.

The commission created this survey so that it can better understand which human rights are being breached inside the system, and how it can stop those rights from being breached.

If you are a child or child-protection experienced parent or relative and you have some time to spare, we would love you to complete the survey. The more feedback we get the more we can understand the problems, so please help us ramp up the survey responses if you can by filling it out or sharing with your groups.

If you have any questions about, or problems with, the survey, you are very welcome to email the Commission at truthcommissionuk@gmail.com
