New website launched for families involved in the child protection process

Child Protection Resource aims to demystify the legal processes

A new website has been launched which aims to help families and all other people who are involved in the Child Protection (or Child In Need) process to navigate through the confusing legal maze of children's services intervention and the family courts. The site is .

The site has come about because, through various discussions on parenting websites such as Mumsnet, a group of people realised that there was a lot of bad, unhelpful and even dangerous advice and information available for parents who have children's services involved in their lives.

Birth parents, foster carers and adoptive parents have all contributed so you can see stories from every side of the process. Social workers and family lawyers are among many of the professionals who have also contributed to the site to provide information about what their roles can be.

All contributions to the debate are welcomed by the site.

The site is here.
