The real truth, statistics, figures  and facts revealed.

12 May 2019

So what are the real statistics? 

Here is a Summary Breakdown.


Here in the United Kingdom, the national statistics for 31st March 2017 - 31st of March 2018, stood at a total of 75,420 children becoming a looked after child and being removed from their families. This means 1 child is being taken in to care every 6 minutes. Goverment targets are set to remove well over 6,285 children every single month from their families and placing these children in either foster placements, children's homes or put up for adoption. 90% of the children that end up in the care system and placed in children's homes are usually subjected to neglect, physical harm, emotional harm and sexual abuse. Now bare in mind the UK population's net growth is 1 baby born every 1.5 minutes. If you multiply that it totals to 4 babies born every 6 minutes. Remember the local authorities are removing 1 child every 6 minutes, this means the government are removing quarter (25%) of the United Kingdom's children, this means 25% of the population of children are in the care system. You may want to look at it in another way they are removing children at an alarming rate of 1 child out of every children being forcibly removed and placed under the local authorities care becoming another looked after child statistic. If the United Kingdom's child population in March 2018 was 12 million children living in the UK then even I can work out on the statistics of 25% that is approximately 3 million children that have been forcibly removed from loving parents and are now living within the care system under the local authorities care as looked after children. So if there are 225 babies born every single day and you multiply that by 30 that works out to 6,750 babies born every month then the local authorities are removing 6,285 children each and every month, now take 18 years of childhood divide that in to (the 25%) within the next 54 months (4.5 yrs) and if something doesn't change then we will continue at this alarming rate then nearly every single child in the United kingdom will no longer be living with there parent's but they will all become just another looked after child statistic.

there are..

165 voluntary run children's homes,

618 local authorities run children's homes,

1,749 privately run children's homes,

2,532 children's homes in the UK in total.

Now if you are going to listen to the rubbish  that the government feed you which is that they reckon that there average is 4.5 beds per children's home, this would work out by 2,532 x 4.5 making a total of approximately 11,394 children living in children's homes somewhere in the UK. But ive worked with children in the system for many years and all the kids I've helped have told me that there are more like 10 bedrooms to every floor and there are usually at least floors to every home which are 20 bedrooms per home, so If you base that on what we know then that totals out at a staggering 50,640 this is just for children's homes not secure units, foster placements, adopted, sgo, or deaths.

50% of prostitutes in this country have come from a childhood within the care system.

80% of homeless people in this country have come from a childhood within the care system.

80% of young adults that have come from the care system are unemployed within years of leaving care.

13% of children that have come from the care system leave school with 5 good G.C.S.E grades, compared to the 58% of children brought up within their own families.

9% of young adults that have come from the care system go on to university, compared to the 47% of young adults brought up within their own families.

50% of all young offender inmates have come from a childhood within the care system.

26% of all prison inmates were in care as a child.

25% of all girls within the care system fall pregnant at least once before they leave the care system.

50% of all girls within the care system become single mother's themselves within years of leaving the care system.

7% of all young adults under the age of 18 years old within the care system have criminal convictions. Compared with the 2% of all young adults under the age of 18 years old brought up within their own families.

My God I knew it was bad but this is much worse than I can get my head round, have a look at my petition http://chng.it/tS8GG2sv but now I am having my doubts that even if we got a million sigs that the government would take any notice, anyway I will continue and hope all that see it will sign and share, Rick

Everybody has the right to private and family life, human rights act, article 8.
Everybody has the right to private and family life, human rights act, article 8.

Every action creates a reaction.

The Sad Fact Of Our Nation ...

Do you know why they are keep stealing our babies? Well let me tell you it is because there is absolutely no revenue money to be made by keeping families together or by supporting them.

Think about it logically for a second, think from outside of the box.

Now take onboard the fact that our government must keep the U.K.'s yearly outgoing costs and taxations to the maximum and as high as they possibly can when tallying the books. So each tax year when they borrow money against the yearly expenses of our nation for the next tax year.

They only make money per care order or per child under there care.

The fact that they leave the real genuine cases of child abuse and neglect alone and do not remove these broken children that desperately need it says a lot and this is because they lose money by paying out on expenses for child therapy and costs to call in outside agencies to work with families.

So for every ear tagged, easy pickings, unbroken child placed within the care system they get paid money for, this money is supposed to cover the child's expenses and costs while they are in the care system. If that child is not broken they can make a lot more money and it is a lot less paperwork to fill out. Remember it is a set amount per child not for the work they do or do not do.

Now let the logic kick in for a moment, think!!! the government are using our children as a financial commodity, to pay off our huge national debt to all the swiss banks we owe billions to.

Why you might ask? Because us families can't afford to kick up a stink. We can't afford to fight back like every other public sector can, all the other available resources the government can tap they have all previously tried. They have tried to raise taxes or to cut the wages of the police, teachers, fire bridgade, doctors and children's services and it has always failed miserably as is proved time and time again, they all go on strike under the national union. So that only leaves us the public sector, our families and our children that are left wide open for them to attack, as we are the easiest target for them. We are the only resources that they have left to tap in to and because we can't afford to fight back as it would cost us our children and the government know this only to well.

Now remember our children are happy, they feel the warmth of our unconditionally love, they are cared for and feel a sense of belonging and they know they are wanted with their families, until children's service's come along and snatch them by using false alligations and accusing the parent's of crimes they have not even committed yet.

By using our government's social care, children's services are abuse and neglecting our children !!! It is social care and only social care that inflict physical, sexual and emotional harm to our children !!! so many of our innocent babies and children suffering abuse in the care system and it always goes unnoticed or ignored they hush these children's direct disclosures up and brush it under the carpet and what's more is the abuse do not stop for these children of anything it just gets worse as a twisted kind of punishment for speaking out against them, whether it is once or in many many cases years of systematical physical and sexual abuse, they are imprisoned within the care system, a cold, unloving, strange and alien world, torn away from their families and left to cry themselves to sleep every single night for the rest of their childhood, left missing and wanting there mummies and daddies. Remember a lot of these children as young as ten years old that are placed within the care system attempt suicide and many succeed. Spending what should be their innocent childhood years wondering what they did so wrong to be taken away from there families, an emotional harm that will stay with them and effect them for the rest of there lives the mental abuse will scar these children's forever and the damage caused will carry on over in to there adult life and the suffering that children's service's cause these children is far worse than any parents could ever inflict on their children and why? for a few extra quid when tallying up their cooked books at the end of the tax year.

Its a shame they haven't realised it yet before it is to late that it is us the public and our children that are the U.K.'s future. Without us the government are nothing !!! the only thing they will ever achieve by using and abusing the nation's children as financial targets is to bring Great Britain to it's knees, distroying the next generation and the generations after that by creating dysfunctional broken future generations of children and adults who can not live with the harm they have suffered within the care system.

We the people pay our tax and the governments wages to a job for us the public by running our country for us as we vote and they took an oath to uphold the law and to abide by what we the people want for the greater good of our country and instead what do they do? it will be there actions that will destroy our country by tearing down the very foundations that makes Great Britain Great, they are damaging our families and breaking our children's spirits. 

It's the actions of our very own government who we in truth should feel comfortable with to run our country, but instead we live in the dreaded fear.

I used to be proud to called myself British, now i hang my head in shame at the very thought and mear mention of the United Kingdom there is absolutely nothing united about our government.

Thank you and it's so very true every action creates a reaction.

My personal message to all protesters.

I feel it's important to put clarity on to the scale of things and this needs to be said, the only way to win any case or to make changes within the law system is to fight the law by becoming the law !!! it is the only way !!! I see so many go outlaw anarchist and I have never ever known a family yet to win and to get their children back by shouting outside a building !!! if anything it will seal there children's fate of being In the care system indefinitely !!! now if it was a case of every single family not just a handful and I'm talking every single affected parent and their family members going all out outlaw, that would need to be a massive 2 million families who have been affected by children services then game on as you are talking wide spread pandemonium !!! now that would be something I would be interested in and a part of !!! but so many people say they will definitely be there and never turn up or make it !!! if everyone had the same determination in to changing the laws and in to make a difference as they do for fighting for their children then that would be a different matter !!! there would not be enough pavements in the streets of london to hold that amount of numbers in families and family members it would ultimately bring London to a stand still and cause pandemic uproar outside the houses of parliament which they could not ignore the shear fact of that enormous scale for any longer !!! it would literally be knocking on the houses of parliaments door !!! but I am sad to say that it is ok if everyone else is protesting and lots of people talk the talk !!! but when it comes down to the raw facts and reality of it and people having to step outside and to leave their homes and their comfort zones to join in and stand up to be counted then I am afraid to say that very very few can walk the walk !!!! Now anyone that actually know me knows I do things with facts and figures so here is the quick summary breakdown for everyone !!! For every 100 people who say they will be there and they will attend that only 5 people maximum will ever turn up, so just to get 5,000 people to attend you will need over 100,000 people to agree to attend, making this a fighting battle that the people can only fail and lose in, I am afraid that 5,000 people is not enough it would take at least 100,000 people to even make the slightest little bit of an impression on the government to make them even so much as raise an eyebrow and what is needed to be taking the people of this country seriously !!! Now the facts are that you would need 2 million people onboard and to agree to turn up just to get the bare minimal number of 100,000 people needed to actually attend and turn up for government to listen !!! and I am ashamed to admit it but that just is not going to happen end of !!! so the only other choice that is left open to us is that we try to infiltrate ourselves in to their world from the outside to the inside by using the powers of the law and by gaining the support of their own influentially respected people already within parliament that are already listened to and who are respected and heard from within or by gaining that amount of influence and respect for ourselves by becoming the law and the only way to achieve this is by shear hard work there is no easy short cuts or routes you can take the only way is to learn their own ways and relentless studying day and night and hard work by bettering ourselves and our skills and knowledge and but crawling our way from the bottom up and climbing their own ladders and by FIGHTING LAW WITH THE LAW !!!!! And using this way as a method you do not need hench amounts of people to make up the numbers either. IT WILL ONLY TAKE A HANDFUL OF PEOPLE NOT EVEN THAT !!! IT IS POSSIBLE THAT IT WILL ONLY TAKE ONE PERSON, JUST ONE PERSON CAN AND MOST PROBABLY WILL WHEN PUSH COMES TO SHOVE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE AND TO BE THE ONE TO CHANGE THE ENGLISH LAW SYSTEM FACT !!!!!

When did it all start to wrong.

Tony Blair changed targets in '2000' under labour policy to raise the number of children adopted by 50% from 2,700 up to 5,400 per year, which is 4 times higher than in France (which has a similar population as England and Wales). Tony Blair promised millions to the county councils that managed to achieve these targets. Some councils have had more than £2,000,000 (2 million pounds) given to them in rewards for successful adoptions. Tony Blair's intentions were all done for the right reason's. He was trying to get the difficult to place older children aimed at seven years old and above living in children's home's ect, and that have been passed from pillar to post and to get these children out of the care system and allocated to adoptive parent's to give these children the security of a permanent loving and stable family life and a home environment.

But the reform failed miserably, IT DO NOT WORK !!!!!

Instead children's service's and these social worker's began to see the promise and potential of these extra bonuses and cash incentive to earn easy money on top of their set wages, they began to see the benefits from earmarking babies and the cute toddlers under the age of 5 years old from good loving families as they are easily removed and already ready for adoption, rather than the troubled or "damaged" children and toddler's that already have or are showing signs of behavioural problems and that already have issue's that have come from an abusive or neglectful family backgrounds, instead of what the policy was originally set in place for.

Which inevitably ended up leaving the difficult and hard to place children still without a permanent, stable, secure or loving family home, as a result of this the number of children over the age of 7 years old within the care system being successfully adopted plummeted by half every single year since the policy was put into play in '2000' defeating what the law was originally designed for.

I strongly believe it has become a very lucrative money making business to tempting to turn down for the corrupt social worker.

In some cases babies are being selected even before they are born, where in the majority of case's the social worker see's an opportunity arise from a vulnerable young single mother as an easy target, babies are even being earmarked while they are still in there mother's womb. I read a news report not so long ago where one baby was forcibly removed from the mother in the labour ward by a social worker before the mother had even finished or produced the placenta!!!. Under the human rights act article 8 "right to a private and family life" "respect for one's established family life" "the right not to have one's home life interfered with" or one of my favourites under the human rights act conclude that the interference with family life was not justifiable under article 8 (2). Ultimately where is the help and support to the mother to enable her to prove she can meet the child's needs to be able to keep her child. Parents are being told they must lose their children because at some point in the future they might abuse or neglect them? "Risk of future emotional harm" as they are famously known for using. I know of social workers fabricating stories about innocent parent's, falsifying reports and legal documents simply to ensure these babies are put up for adoption! One report case I remember was of a mother's son being put up for adoption on the grounds that she might shout at him and upset him in the future!

Where's the British centuries old law "innocent till proven guilty beyond any reasonable doubt", or under the human rights act article 7 "no punishment without crime".

Now ask yourself this, if Children service's base cases on possible future probabilities and cases are put together on the version of a corrupt social worker how does any mother stand a chance at proving her innocence. What judge will believe a mother when aligations are made about her over a social worker (whom is supposed to be a representing body for the council), all on the beliefs that a mother might at some point in the future abuse or neglect or whatever excuse they deem fit. These families haven't committed any crime, they haven't even done anything wrong and haven't broken any laws YET!!!

So instead of certain social workers taking a mother's baby away, destroying and tearing apart her whole world and braking her Soul, why aren't the social services working together with the families to help them to work with the mother so she may keep her babies, so that any original concerns or aligations raised against her shouldn't ever happen again and everyone involved can say wholeheartedly they have no concerns for the health and wellbeing of the children involved. If a mother isn't offered the help that she needs to become a good enough or better parent how can she ever prove herself to them?

In Scotland there are no official targets or cash incentives and adoption rates are only a fraction of the number compared to England and Wales, even when allowing for a smaller population.

Here is your food for thought....

For every single child or baby successfully adopted the social worker in charge of the case receive huge amounts cash for EACH CHILD!!!!

Now ask yourself this! Why was David Cameron pushing for yet more adoptions with the promise of yet more cash bonuses when quite clearly Tony Blair had shown that the policy does not work! It went wrong! So why was David Cameron making a bigger mistake out of the mistakes originally made????

Ask yourself this.

From the moment a family first hits the social services radar they are then a target, where I can quite confidently say the social services almost always have already made a decision long before they have even met your family and it won’t matter how hard you try to co-operate because at every attempt of proving your innocence it will only be used against you to make you look bad by the social worker who will twist innocence into something dark so no matter what you do you will always come across as an unfit mother. A system that is pitted and against you before you even know you are being investigated. There is no jury in the family court, all evidence is presented in front of a solo judge or of a trio of magistrates who make their decisions based upon the balance of probability where social worker’s are renowned for making up lies, fabricating notes and twisting facts that are submitted as evidence where judges are lead to believe what they are told by the social worker where judges time and time again make the mistake in believing and backing these social workers up and there fabricated Web of lies and stories and because of the courts secrecy this means that no-one will ever find out the truth and there are no retributions for tthese social workers destroying people lives and souls!!!!

The only other people guarded more closely than the family courts believe it or not are the homeland of the security services MI15 themselves!!!!

However it’s not only the secretive and publicly hidden family courts which are based on the injustice of our adoption system but there’s a more worrying factor of the official figures. Ask yourself why are the numbers of adoptions and protective cases still rising at an alarming rate???

Are there really more mother’s turning into potential killer’s or child abusers???

I THINK NOT!!!!

Maybe it’s as easy and plain to see as the nose on your face !!!! Its the satisfaction of reaching their annual quoter of targets and the financial gain of bonus incentives offered which is spurring and fuelling these greed fat cat social worker’s to turn corrupt. Money being offered to local council’s to reach unrealistic targets!!! And to gain bonuses!!!

Ask yourself this maybe this is giving them a reason and the drive which is causing the rise of forced adoptions in the UK????

Children are being ripped away from loving families each year even though they have done nothing wrong they haven’t harmed their children in anyway at all!!!

Ive helped many, many families all with different kinds of cases so I get to hear all these parents cries and pleas for help all to often !!!

Social workers are no longer working as a representing body performing a duty to protect children and to keep families together by helping and supporting them, they are now working solo for their own personal gain for their own means and their end goal is a pot of gold, working under their own agenda to line their own pockets using biased opinions and false alligations making lies stick at all costs and by using any means possible. Each case contradicting the next !!!

Here’s a perfect example as food for thought for you all ...

A parent who buys loads of presents for Christmas gets accused of emotionally abusing their children by spoiling them and by buying their affections.

A parent who buys just a few presents for Christmas that maybe the children have asked for only gets accused that they are neglecting there children by denying them Christmas presents!!!! A serious cases of be damed if you do and be damed if you don’t.

Richard Ridley ex foster carer for over 24 years
"Social workers no longer working to protect children" no longer? I saw this 20 years ago, and can quote first hand how they lie, given access to our fostering records I could prove it but that is unlikely to happen, tried it once was lead into a room with an almighty pile of documents and told I had half an hour to produce what I wanted, it beggars belief

The principles.

The aim of adoption is supposed to be about finding families for children that need homes.

The real truth is the adoption system is greatly flawed and has turned into a profit driven industry. Cash incentives, impossibly high targets and money bonuses are making adoption and exploited business, literally holding children as hostages. They are targeting either couple they can divide or the young and vunerable single mum's who have no means to financially challenge social care in the courts. Forcing parent's to no alternative but to submit and relinquish their rights by being beaten down till they surrender.

They will try to lead you into a false sense of security even as far as trying to be your friend and to make u think everything if fine by feeding u a pack of lies and while your defenses are down they are looking at everything u do and taking notes on how they can twist everything that a parent does which is good and positive into making the parents look bad in a negative light trying to portray them as an abusive or neglectful parent.

They provide inaccurate information, they will lie and fabricate there reports, documents and legal statements, they will stall for time with everything and take advantage of parents vulnerability by conquer and divide tactics.

They will not give parents the chance to prove willing or to prove that they are good parents.

They will even go as low as to giving parents inaccurate dates and times for core group meetings, case conferences and court hearings, so that it can be used against the parents that they failed to turn up on time and that parents can't stick to important appointments.

If parents question or refuse to do anything there social worker wants then to do they will say you are not co-operating.

They will nearly always use "risk of future emotional harm" which parents can't escape from.

EVERYTHING PARENTS SAY WILL BE USED AGAINST THEM!!!!

The corruption.

Parent's are judged merely on probability of future emotional harm. Newborn babies are being removed from there natural mother's and taken into the care system and all based on the hope they can make any flimsy excuse or alligation stick. Now im not saying that all social worker's have turned bad because there are some absolutely brilliant social worker's out there but on the scale of the balance in my personal view well over half of them have been corrupted by being pressurised to meet the government's unrealistic, unreachable target expectations and squeezed the life out of with being overworked, under paid and under staffed, giving these social worker's no other option other than to ear tag as many babies and children under the age of 5 years old by attacking and failing these young vunerable mother's at all costs, these mother's arent even given the chance to prove that they are or can be good mother's, let alone the families and couple's that are initially a happy couple just going through everyday life with everyday issue's that are together that they forced into seperating by deception and by scaring these couples half to death with threatening them that if they do not seperate they will remove there children anyway and it is all because children's service's must attempt to get a successful adoption at the end of it in order to reach this governments yearly set target's so that there own county wont have to forfeit any of next year's tax funding. Our very own government are cashing in on our babies in what can be described as nothing less than BLOOD MONEY !!! and to add a cherry on top of this social worker's are cashing in on our children all in the hope and promises of cash bonuses from our Government.

Of course their are the real and genuine cases where the parent's are in reality unfit parent's and there children are at risk of abuse and neglect, in these circumstances then it is children's service's duty and responsibility to protect such children from being subjected to this.

But the vast majority of children are taken by force against there parent's will, more often than not on flimsy alligations and excuses based on lies fabricated by social worker's in charge of these parent's cases. We are seeing time and time again mothers and families stating they are innocent of the crimes they are being accused of. Im also getting an alarming amount of cases where the social worker's in charge of cases are in fact not even fit to practice or hold a valid registration with the health care professional committee (HCPC) either they are still trainee social worker's who are not yet qualified, or they have infact been struck of the register previously which should be enough to shake up the whole of our United Kingdom and to open our eyes and wake up and smell of coffee that something isnt right !!! whether unqualified or stuck off these social worker's are NOT FIT TO PRACTICE !!!! END OF !!!! yet they continue to be judge and jury over our families and children and they aren't even registered let alone legally allowed to even sign a legal report or document concerning our children.
