From where I am standing I have no idea how we can say things have improved since The Family Justice Review, we still have children whose voices are not being listened to, who are told they are lying and are in the care of people who abuse them mentally and physically.

All these posh glossy documents and powerful speeches from people in authority mean nothing to the children who are being neglected by services who were set up to protect them.

How many ‘serious reviews’ do we have to have, with the conclusion that, ‘lessons will be learnt’ until we all hear their voices?
