'The Government & Local Authorities Need To Be Made Accountable For Their Actions When Removing Children'
This Petition Will Go To The Prime minister and Head of Children & Social Services!
Stop Injustice Now Has Been Fighting For Change for Along Time, Its Time to Stop the Abuse by the Government. Approximately 1 in 15 children have been taken into care, some adopted, at some point in their lives. Nearly 80,000 children are taken into care each year. That's the entire population of 100 primary schools. Each case costs the taxpayer an average of Pfund150,000 in legal fees; many cost over Pfund750,000. There are other costs, costs that needlessly drain the resources of local authorities, central government and charities. Private children's homes charge up to 'Pfund10,000 per week per child' and foster parents in High Wycombe for example gets 'Pfund800 per week per child' Children in care cost the taxpayer over Pfund1 Billion pounds a year. That's an average of Pfund5,000 per child, per week-more than eight times what it would cost to send a child to Cambridge University.
