Harvesting of the Disabled for Profit

A2013-09-20-15_36_14Parents of special educational needs children including those labelled autistic be warned this may be your fate.

The state are creating and labelling children as having a learning disability rather than a difficulty.

The renamed label is intellectual disability

See the latest number here.

http://schoolsweek.co.uk/schools-struggle-as-autism-diagnoses-rise-25-per-cent/

There are several databases used to share information illegally under Data Protection Act and s8 HRA to harvest children including future criminals.

A learning (intellectual) ‘disability‘ is an impairment of mind, permanent, innate and evidenced by a low IQ  and is now  on the rise in the UK look at the statistics

http://chrishatton.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/the-disappeared.html?spref=tw.

Whereas a learning ‘difficulty‘ is not inate, and  can be because  a child is autistic ( learns differently), a late developer,  has poor teaching/assessment or taught in a second language,  such a child will have at least an average IQ. .

So if your child is a late developer autistic, has inadequate teaching he labelled and doomed to be a cash cow for life.

Unless he is part of the labelling state cabal.

Or in private education as they do not have the EHC system.

Education, Health, and Care Statements replaced Special Educational Needs statements last year.

Education, Health and Care statements unlike SEN, require social services to monitor your child’s ‘welfare’.

A school protection officer/ social worker will now be part of your life.

And,  your  child’s name secretly notified to  MASH- Multi Agency, Safeguarding Hub

Invasive IT Databases are being provided by CAPITA at 2016 see link.

In breach of HRA and Data Protection, to target families at risk in schools without their permission or even knowledge.

Your child will be in this system and by it watched covertly by every  agent of the state.

Read here the law and databases used to target the ‘disabled’ and their families by all agents of the state.

http://databasemasterclass.blogspot.co.uk/

And, despite the inherent difficulties of coping with an autistic./ different child.

Any bruise, scratch, dirt, swear  word, behaviour issue, sexualised behaviour, weight loss/gain,  head lice, old /inappropriate/clothing, emotional problem, parents relationship, lateness, rearrangement of meeting, attitude,comments, will be noted.

But you will be unaware you are under their microscope.

And have no right of reply or correction of their databases.

You will be impressed everyone  is taking such an interest.

Ignorant of why, your child really is, so ‘special’.

In June 2016 the government announced millions would be given to provide early intervention before crisis point.

This means those merely ‘at risk’ will also be targeted ie the poor, or those with relatives with special needs.

Education ‘pathways‘ are  used to harvest as many as possible to private eventually venture capital education and care .

As it is highly profitable- £200,000 a year financed by NHS (health), LA ( social),  D of E ( education )

This intelligence gathering can be used to enforce any medication, therapy, schooling, or silence your complaints, via care proceeding or threat of them.

And serves as a file of historic ‘concerns’ of parental abuse/neglect/capacity, and/or future, Court of Protection LA evidence, that it is in your 18+ child’s ‘best interests’ to  be removed to community living for life, and your access limited and/or excluded.

Under EHC statements, your child can no longer attend a day school at 16, nor use overnight respite facilities.

His education, continues, by ad hoc, unaccountable, ‘independent’ living skills education packages

https://finolamoss.wordpress.com/2014/11/25/education-health-and-care-statements-emperors-clothes/

Consisting of agency workers,  escorting him to ad hoc skills facilities, overseen by a package boss.

Who, unknown to you are briefed on ‘your family’s file’ and will continue to monitor your child’s ‘welfare’.

Their goal,  is ‘independent’, away from home living and  is likely, to result, in a cash bonus, or, at least, more lucrative education packages from the LA.

‘Education’ will discuss leaving Mummy and Daddy, with your child.

Regardless of the effect or yours or his wishes.

And, you may not be told.

At 18, all services are funded by Adult Services.

Due to government cuts, these services are limited to assessment for state residential care for life- independent/ supported/community living,

A new private industry being bought up by monopoly venture capital US companies like Cygnet who own CAMBIAN with over 160 home sites.

http://www.local.gov.uk/documents/10180/5854661/Adult+social+care+funding+2014+state+of+the+nation+report/e32866fa-d512-4e77-9961-8861d2d93238.

This states,

‘The MODEL OF CARE, is increasingly one, which promotes INDEPENDENCE, and MANAGERS RISK.’ ( Code for ‘community’/supported living). 

Pressure, will be placed on the LA, to transfer adult funding to central government funding, which is only available, for residential Provision.

https://finolamoss.wordpress.com/2015/04/27/independent-living-disabled-penned-for-profit/

The LA’s standard  adult support plan criteria eludes to this in a question the Adult Social Worker must complete;

Does the plan promote independence including identifying goals that could result in reducing paid support within an agreed period ?

Your child because of his learning difficulty will be treated as a ‘child in need’ under s17 Childrens  Act.

Children in need meetings will be held  with the education package, and, safeguarding issues  raised,- hygiene, clothing, food, parenting, medical and dental attendance, physical, sexual emotional  abuse,  and, placed in social services core assessments.

As, the LA funding can only decide, it is in your child’s ‘best interests’, to live away from you, and, your access limited, little in your favour, will be recorded.

No matter, how unfairly skewed against you, even if factually incorrect, it appears impossible, to change these assessments, and, relay  the correct information to professionals, and agencies.

The difficultly posed by your child’s disability, or, the inadequacy of support will not be considered.

The LA commission the services, and, it is liable, if inadequate.

Your ability to safeguard, parent, clean your home, and not neglect your child, will be judged, as if your child, were not disabled.

And, any possible concerns, re cleanliness/safeguarding/emotional abuse, real, or contrived,

Will be reported back, by support workers.

Whilst, your child’s disability, will not be considered, in assessing your parental capacity.

It will be, grossly exaggerated, by the LA in  their assessments of him,

To enable the maximum to be claimed from public funds to be paid to private  independent/community living providers.

The worse your child’s behave becomes or is made to appear, the greater the income  the independent/supported living provider  can claim.

This also is used as evidence you are unable to cope, and it is  in his ‘best interests’ he to be removed.

If you do get support, it will not be charged to help you, other than engage with your child.

But, support will be charged, to assess your capability, as a parent, and, whether you have a safe, clean, adequate home environment.

But you again, will be unaware of this. https://finolamoss.wordpress.com/2014/10/14/gathering-evidence-from-social-https://finolamoss.wordpress.com/2014/10/14/gathering-evidence-from-social-care/

Regular meeting s behind your back, will be held, between the social services, education, and, agency worker provider, who  have ‘your file’.

Your family, and child, will be whatever, they, in secret, decide.

Any information, you provide to workers/professionals, about your child, that does not fit the cabal’s purpose, of abuse, and neglect, safeguarding concerns will be ignored.

Support workers, on zero hour, minimum wage contracts, will be briefed, on the questions, to ask, and, matters to look out for.

https://finolamoss.wordpress.com/2015/02/10/i-smell-a-rat/

Your family GP, will also  be part of the canal, and, despite confidentiality restrictions, both, your child’s medical records, and yours, will be shared.

Anything, that points to present or future parental physical, or mental incapacity, will be used to show, it is in your child’s ‘best interests’, to be removed to ‘independent’ living.

Any existent, or non-existent health, or mental concerns will be notified to your GP, by education, or, any agency, or social worker. https://finolamoss.wordpress.com/2014/08/24/my-complaint-and-unaccountable-services/

To possibly gain support, as a carer, or, any respite, cleaning   etc, you will have to undergo a Carer’s assessment.

This is used to probe, every aspect of your physical and mental ‘wellbeing’.

But, the LA are not under a duty, to provide support, and, have no funds to do so.

And, will only consider it, if the affect on a carer’s wellbeing, is ‘severe’, which would then make a carer, unfit, and/or a risk to their chargee. https://finolamoss.wordpress.com/2014/11/20/carers-act-2014-care-to-ensnare/

‘Concerns’, from support/education workers, are relayed to social services.

And sought expressly, by leading questioning.

And covertly, by tricks and grooming.

You will consider them all your friends, until without notice they disappear.

They will not raise their concerns with you.

https://finolamoss.wordpress.com/2015/01/31/education-report-a-red-mark-the-size-of-a-fist/

These ‘concerns’, will be placed in court statements,to prevent you representing your child in court as you are cast as abuser/neglector there is a conflict of interests between you and your child.,

And, show, it is in his ‘best interests’, to be removed from you and your contact limited.

You will only discover, their ‘concerns’, on reading your social worker’s  court statement, in support of s48 Mental Capacity Act Interim application to the Court of Protection.

Your child will be forced, if necessary, by a court order, to undergo a psychological assessment, paid for by the LA.

This will assess, any deemed emotional abuse your child is subjected to at home, and a blanket, illegal capacity test.

https://finolamoss.wordpress.com/2015/03/03/standard-capacity-assessments-stephen-hawking-would-fail-without-his-box/

This will state, that due to your child’s ‘intellectual disability’, he is, and has always been, unable to make any decisions.

It is now assumed that children subject to a SEN now EHC statement will be incapable under MCA and conferences for SEN families give presentations to that effect on Transition ie 16-18, see here

Your child has now been made, the perfect commodity for life, for the multibillion pound, unaccountable, independent living industry.

https://finolamoss.wordpress.com/2015/05/31/the-mental-capacity-act-in-practice-emancipated-or-insentient/

Where he is safely behind the closed doors of the state where abuse  or even death is not investigated.

Your GP, will  look for signs of neglect, weight loss, bed sores, skin conditions, abuse, and self -harm.

https://finolamoss.wordpress.com/2014/09/25/a-voice-crying-in-the-wilderness/

If you proffer other causes, this may be evidence of fabricated disorder/ Munchausen.

Your GP, will be instructed by the Court of Protection, to do a  physical examination of your child, under s49 MCA, whether necessary, or not, and, any other assessments.

And, regardless of the distress, it causes.

His letter of instruction, will state, that the LA have concerns, and, that you have denied access, to your child, weather proved, or not.

Once the Court, becomes involved, any support workers, will become overt assessors.

All care agencies, and day centres, are funded by the LA, and therefore, controlled by them.

And as, ‘independent’ away from home living, is now the LA’s, only policy, for adult social care, all feed into it.

Despite, his EU, United Nations Rights not, to have the state remove his right to make decisions,http://www.un.org/disabilities/default.asp?id=279

Here is an OFSTED report in 2016 showing the shambles SEN is in there.

You, and your child are flies in a sealed LA web.

The government’s Transforming Care document proposes early intervention for the autistic and learning disabled who evidence ‘challenging behaviour  and contains the following statistics;.

There are an estimated 1.2 million people in England, of which 286,000 are children and young people under the age of 18, with a learning disability (Emerson et al. 2012).

This means that roughly 20 people in every thousand have a learning disability (2-3% of the general population). The majority live their lives without support from specialist learning disability services – for instance, of the roughly 1 million adults with a learning disability, it is estimated that 189,000 (21%) (Emerson et al. 2012) are known to learning disability services.

There are an estimated 700,000 people with autism in England (Brugha et al. 2012) of which 125,000 are children and young people under the age of 18 (Baird et al. 2006).

This means that roughly 11 people in every thousand have autism (1.1% of the general population). It is estimated that 44%-52% of people with autism also have a learning disability (Emerson et al. 2010).

Those who display behaviour that challenges Challenging behaviours are generally understood to be exhibited by 10-15% of adults with learning disabilities known to services (approx. 22-34,000 people), whilst often peaking between the ages of 20-49 (Emerson et al. 2001).

A further 40,000 of children under the age of 18 are believed to display challenging behaviour (Emerson et al 2014).

As set out in Challenging Behaviour: A Unified Approach (Royal College of Psychiatrists, et al, 2007, p.14) challenging behaviour is behaviour

of such an intensity, frequency or duration as to threaten the quality of life and/or the physical safety of the individual or others and is likely to lead to responses that are restrictive, aversive or result in exclusion”.

The Mental Capacity Act in practice -emancipated or insentient?

feguard

untitled

8 years ago, the Mental Capacity Act was, supposedly implemented to provide a  ’ legal’ framework, to empower, and emancipate,   the incapables’ ‘decision making’.

But has it?

No. See House of Lords Select Committee report.

The Local Authority strategy, to remove all suspected ‘incapables’ to private for profit state care, increased rapidly, after 2007.

Studies show, these removals   were at first,  often illegal, without reference to the Court  of Protection. http://www.communitycare.co.uk/2012/10/30/where-social-workers-are-going-wrong-on-the-mental-capacity-act/

Whereas, now the Court rubber stamps  removal.

As analysed in previous posts, it is functionally, very difficult, to legally comply with s1 of the Act, and, empower the vulnerable.

And this has not happened, as the Act is being used to remove all decisions from the vulnerable and their parents.

From this, we can only  conclude, the real reason for the Act,  was to enforce  private profit institutional  ‘care’ for life away from family and effectively any real community.

Such care, would have huge benefits, for  the government, and LAs.

The LA, gets the old, disabled, and vulnerable off their books, eradicating the need for adult care.

Social workers, are used as enforcers, and then, replaced by care managers, who merely oversee private provision they have commissioned and would be liable for if inadequate.

LA budgets, do not then, have to be used on continuing   home support.

Private profit care, benefits the government,   as,  public money,  available, to the disabled and their families, under the Chronically Sick and Disabled Act 1970, can instead be used by venture capitalists, and businesses, to make profit, from social care,  fuelling  economic growth.

LA budget cuts, purporting to reduce the UK deficit, actually increase it, by payment of huge sums to private care providers .

The market for such care, is  ever extended, now to those which learning disabilities, and behavioural problems, to maximise the potential consumer base.

Capacity/ability to make a decision is assessed routinely, and covertly.

The Care Act 2014, implemented last month, dilutes ‘capacity’, to ’substantial difficulty’ in being involved in decisions.

As   assessments   are   routine, they are  based on age, or label, and  therefore MCA illegal, but who, or, how, could anyone complain?

This approach is highly discriminatory, and, marginalises, and stigmatises   certain groups of people, by questioning their ‘decisions’, and, removing their right to make them.

The state can then enforce any care, and medication, they want.

For those living in residential care, rather than for emancipation, the MCA  is being used, to justify tick- boxed regulation, and unchecked, perfunctory at best, standards of ‘care’, and, defend practioners.

The Supreme Court   decision Cheshire West   [2014] UKSC 19, graphically illustrated, how functionally unworkable the   MCA is, in relation to the many deprivation of liberties, that take place daily, in private care.

And caused   a bureaucratic nightmare, which will do nothing to empower the vulnerable, but simply increases the box ticking of already overburdened, understaffed, underpaid care workers.

It has been translated operationally, to a Review of the Care Provision annually of the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards with a Relevant Registered Person, who is generally not a family member but similar to an IMCA trained and appointed by a charity, but paid for by the state and the Adult Services. Most Care Providers have computer software to deal with the matter as part of their ‘best interests’ check list.

As,   with deprivation of liberties, any attempt to actually apply the Act, to the myriad of individual daily decisions, in residential care, as is required by the Act, would also be functionally impossible, particularly, in our, all for profit, zero hour care factories.

Usefully, the court practice is to remove a person’s capacity to make all future decisions, despite this being illegal under the MCA.

This assessment, to add weight to it will often be by a psychologist, pursuant to section 48 MCA.

But can be anyone.

And a s48 MCA application is granted to the LA on merely showing they suspect a person incapable.

The standard assessment order will decide, if a person has the capacity to litigate, make decisions as to where he lives, the care he receives, and the contact he has with members of his family

These are not decision specific,   and, other than for LA funding, often, need not be made, so  illegal under the MCA.

As mentioned in the post, ‘Standard Capacity Assessments Stephen Hawing would fail’, the standard LA assessment, is also apparently illegal.

And, does nothing to maximise capacity, other than tick a box on ease, comfort of circumstances, and, appears not to   encourage joint decision making.

We have no figures of how many, if any, pass the capacity test.

If an assessor, were to find a person   capable, he is proving his pay master LA, who suspected incapacity, and, applied to court, wrong.

The standard Record of Assessment,   will also certify, that a person, is unlikely to regain capacity, condemning him, to never, being allowed to make a decision again.

Providing  care providers, with a blanket incapacity assessment for all future decisions, again illegal.

Worse still, capacity, appears to be being equated with sentience.

As shown in Cheshire West judgement.

Where the court of appeal, and minority of the Supreme Court, held that a person can only be deprived of his liberty, if he has the capacity to understand and object to his situation, ie be aware of it.

Even Lady Hale eluded to ‘incapacity’, being equal to unawareness, by her words

An unconscious or sleeping person may not know that he has been locked in a cell, but he has still been deprived of his liberty.

A mentally disordered person who has been kept in a cupboard under the stairs (a not uncommon occurrence in days gone by) may not appreciate that there is any alternative way to live, but he has still been deprived of his liberty’.

Care workers are encouraged to believe, these very vulnerable scared lonely people with communication issues are actually incapable of any awareness or feeling.

As a support worker, horrifyingly  remarked to me ,

‘Would Issy know what was happening, if 5 strangers removed her from home ?’

The state is now allowed by the subversion  of the MCA, to create  the perfect commodities.

And,  the perfect   victims.insentient

 

Spring

IMG_0390It is spring, the gardener is back.

He has observed Issy through the windows, and, in the garden.

I had briefly mentioned our predicament.

But as usual, he makes no enquiry of her.

I ask how his Christmas went, he returns the curtesy.

The social necessity of a favourable reply irritates.

‘It wasn’t that good’, his ‘oh’ expression, encourages me to continue,

‘ Issy might be taken; she is worth £4,000 a week’.

His head cocks slightly, but his fixed richter grin, does not falter.

I go back in.

Furious, amazed, humiliated.

No words express, invisibility.

He boasted he was a devote Christian.

‘See how they love one another’, must be reserved for the chosen.

I email the social worker, to check if they are coming, they say yes.

Both arrive, as usual on Wednesday.

They ask what day time activities we’ve arranged for Isabel.

I had emailed the only day centre provision that was closeish.

Isabel is generally in a better mood, and Angel Eyes has managed to read and colour with her.

She rushed down the path with me to pay the window cleaner, but is still reluctant to put her coat on and go out.

All is spring.

All is uncertain.

Acting out? – Dont worry we have medications for that!

This is a post from  Justice for Thomas Rawnsley’s blog.

With photos taken of Thomas,months before he died, in Cambian owned ;community living Kingdom House in Sheffield, where he was taken after a long history of care abuse involving one carer,who had said’ How many fingers can I break this time’, but was unable to as Thomas was double jointed.

After this, Thomas was found difficult to care for, so was sent to this ATU, where he was the only patient, and keeping it open, by his abuse, being used, to claim £12500 per week for the ‘treatment’, evidenced by the beyond shocking photos taken.

Thomas  on medication .

This is the unashamed use of the LA, and our government, of the most vulnerable for investment, and huge profit, using public funds, and breaching their statutory duty to care for them, but to claim the maximum money available under law for their ‘care’, on the basis of their ‘disbility’.

This is also 4 years after Winterbourne View was officially investigated.article-1392892-0C588EA900000578-684_468x286

Since then there has been more abuse, and death, for profit, of our most vulnerable.

The only move, via Norman Lamb, and LB Bill, is to move them out of NHS, MHA ‘care’/’treatment’, to LA, MCA ‘care’, for life in independent for profit living, with no reviews. And ASD/LD are now only being admitted to private hospitals like CYGNET/PRIORY group

Thomas, was placed in such independent living accommodation, where he was abused, and died.

A Surprisingly Good Visit from NHS Mental Health

IMG_0391This day proved a welcome relief, in a life of no reliefs.

The psychiatrist, a tall, attractive Scottish lady, was extraordinarily human, unassuming, and affable.

And the psychologist, unlike some I’ve taught, and the one in 2007, did not observe, or judge me, and had personality.

And, usefully, busied herself with Isabel’s Progress File from Robert Ogden School.

So, all went well in the kitchen.

So well,  two hours flew by without coffee.

I cannot relay, how good it feels, to be respected, and deferred to.

It had never happened before.

I almost felt like a person, rather than the object of negative analysis.

Issy had been up most of the night and was still sleep.

The long awaited period was evident, when we eventually wondered into her bedroom, andwere told to get out.

As usual, no one appeared to know anything,  so were filled in on the chronology to date.

The psychiatrist asked about food preferences, medical allergies and medication.

Worryingly,the type of questions asked before an inpatient stay.

I hoped,they were standard, but then wondered why, the information was not obtained from Isabel’s medical records.

But such are the mysteries of information sharing protocols.

Annoying for us, and professionals

The only major worrying question, on reflection was,

‘Did Issy eat with us?’

My proven justifiable  paranoia, bounced me back, to our first education package, and a comment, I had made to a Reed agency education carer, who’d latterly became a spy.

It was innocuous enough, but, it appears anything, can be made to fit the agenda.

On describing Issy’s trauma, after her 48 bruise NAS restraint, I remarked, ’Issy  would no longer sit and eat with us at the table in our apartment lounge in Ireland’.

This appeared to have been seized upon, by the worker’s grilling ‘education’ boss, and  relayed to our social worker and spun in  our last core assessment to;

It has been observed by workers that the family tend to sit around the table together to eat while Isobel eats alone in the lounge’

I complained about this in April 2014, pointing out, it could not ‘have been observed by workers that the family tend to sit around the table to eat’ as;

a) No worker has ever seen us eat as a family.

And,

b) We do not ‘eat as a family’, except at Christmas and Easter; the drop leaf table in the kitchen being rarely used.

We eat from plates on our knees, in the lounge, watching TV, as we are soap fans,

And

c) Issy has never eaten in the lounge.  She  eats in her bedroom.

It had been made in a sectionheaded Comment on the young person’s needs in relation to family and social relationships, thus, the workers impossible observation, of our deliberate isolating of Issy, appearing evidence of  emotional abuse.

This being one of the very, if only specific questions asked of Issy, and coupled with ‘ I wouldn’t like crumbs in the sitting room’ was both infuriating and worrying.

As it appeared information we had tried to officially correct and was incorrect second hand hearsay, as no worker had ever seen us eat let alone at a table, had been relayed to a NHS psychiatric team charged with assessing  any  emotional abuse of Issy at home.

Excepting for this rather large ponderable,- where they working from a crib sheet ? all went well.

Angel Eyes appeared on Monday and Thursday.

And as usual was a star, and worked her socks off.

Issy has been up, and in a good mood, despite the period.

But wants to be permanently tickled.

But then, who doesn’t?

I Smell a Rat……

the-procession-of-the-trojan-horse-in-troy-1773_jpgLarge-615x290

Angel Eyes is gone.

I smell a rat.

She said, she’d see me on Monday.

We’d had a great afternoon on Thursday, dying my hair.

But  her boss rang on Saturday.

Angel Eyes, couldn’t do anymore shifts, as she’d lose her tax credits .

Not even a single hour ?

Why then,was she the only worker offered.

When she and her boss arrived 5 days ago, in answer to my email?

And, why didn’t she/he, mention her tax credits, on offering her hours?

Or , she in  her long chats on Thursday.

More crucially, where do we go from here?

Only one other agency, got back.

And they too, could be nobbled.

I analyse, my conversations, with Angel Eyes.

She came on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

I recall, she only started asking  odd questions on Thursday.

Lodge/Fist lady, had done the same, despite my garrulous outpouring of Issy information.

At the time, they had irritated, and upset me.

She had opened her arms to offer a hug

I’d asked why the lists of questions, she’d said, she wasn’t good at conversations.

I’d felt guilty.

I now, reflect on Angel Eye’s questions.

I feel like Miss Marble.

And annoyed, I am forced to be so paranoid.

But this de facto beleaguerment, is worse than fiction.

Do you like a drink?’

‘Are you frightened of Issy ?

‘All this is bound to put a strain on your relationship (with Seamus)’.

How does Issy get on with her sister Eleanor, oh, I have already asked you that one’.

All innocuous enough.

But now, indicative of a fishing brief..

I  think of the many poor homes, unable to buy  arrays of cleaning products, without space, clothes, bedding, and healthy food,surrounded by neighbours too willing to spy.

They are sitting ducks.

So Angel Eye’s boss arrived last night, to finalise the ‘package’.

He is now our ‘Measured Lady’.

I ask why our pot of money, cannot be given to us, to find support.

He blinds me with science, and stonewalling.

How can this be personalised services?

He shows me the CV a lady, sent to him in November, and emphasises, she works ‘independently‘, for an old couple.

He arranges a visit .

As usual, more time is wasted on administration, and, needless introductions, than support.

He spouts the standard tripe, of needing to find someone, we are happy with.

But, as with Measured Lady, there is no other candidate.

I don’t know what to say.

There, are the usual awkward silences.

I explain my dilemma.

But, the elephant in the room is ignored.

The lady is coming tonight.

The social  workers tomorrow,

For their weekly ‘surveillance’, as the package boss calls it.

Nice life.

Issy sleeps, and is happy.

Apparently, largely irrelevant, but a good little earner.

Education Report, ‘A Red Mark The Size of a Fist’

4508491-Small-and-powerful-fist-on-a-white-background-Stock-PhotoIt is Thursday 29/1/2014.

What a long, long, week.

As if being up at nights for months, with no personal care, or respite for over 2 years wasn’t enough.

I am now being tortured by the social services.

The snow is thick, my husband had to take the bus to work.

Issy was up at 11.00am, and eventually after much effort in the bath.

And, I managed to get photos of her stomach..

It would appear, all those in need of support, are at the mercy, of any itinerant, zero hour, or, unpaid placement stranger,apparently, desperate, to do the State’s dirty work.

A friend in London told me, carers in care homes, demand ‘protection money’, from relatives.

What a disgusting moral compass is now the norm.

The snow has conspired, to make even walks down the drive scary, Issy doesn’t like slippyness.

Just before noon, the ‘funding lady’, our social workers manger’s manager rang me.

The last thing my psyche needed after Issy’s bath at a moment when she was demanding never ending juice and I was alone.

With the usual infuriating, social worker prescribed conversation,

How are things?’.

You surely must know how things are’. I replied.

You will know more than me, about what’s happening’.

The nice affable lady, did not turn up on Tuesday two days ago, and the Lodge Lady hasn’t today’.

‘We received no prior, or post notification, or indeed, any communication from anyone.’

Except from our adult social services social worker, and GP, demanding to see a non- existent lump on Issy’s tummy’.

This is the ‘intensive, specialist, highly expensive service’, provided to an autistic girl, not yet out of the trauma, the state, for the second time, threw her in’.

The funding lady, then tells me, I have ‘strong opinions’, and, the workers had not felt ‘comfortable’ in the house.

I countered.

They had not mentioned or looked as if they were ‘uncomfortable’.

Let alone why .

Its non- stop coffee, tea and chats, magazines, and two books on autism lent, and, never  returned.

And, they do what they want with Issy.

I have spent the last two years, having all my cupboards rearranged, without asking, and my washing machine broken.

Being a complete tit, I have given away dresses, shoes, coats, tops, CD radios, face creams, shears, masses of legal advice etc. mainly to the lady, who had the first hissy fit.

10 Nintendo games to another worker who befriended Issy, groomed me, and after an outing with him, Issy  repeatedly asked,’ Why do men like having willies up their arse?’.

He was never seen again, as not offered ‘education’ work, (more money and security).

Poor Issy has been so let down, by the itinerancy of workers, but, her fate would be much worse in ‘independent’ living.

And,Lodge Lady ( the latest since November education support worker), had arrived daily, with a Private Eye, or, internet article, or, own experience of a care scandal, to elicit/encourage my ‘strong opinions’.

I remind the funding lady,

‘as zero hour workers, every worker can be specifically chosen, and prescribed’.

She retorts, ‘they are all individuals’.

So the inference is  the 30 +  previous agency workers,  must all have felt ‘uncomfortable’…. For 18 months…. but this, was the first I’d heard of it.

She tells me the affable, independent of the state, with a conscience lady, does not want to support Issy anymore.

So why did she choose Monday, without  warning to leave ?

Why did she make me chutney and chat so freely never mentioning her ‘uncomfortability’.?

It was a  loss,  as she loved the autistic, and Issy liked her.

But she had said ominously, she, ‘had nothing to do, with ‘education’’.

Now, we know why.

I assume, she didn’t want to get involved in their dirty tricks, of the lucrative, independent of family living, industry.

I noticed the nice  workers disappeared.

One, had a two week mystery illness, just when the trainee and social workers, were moving in for the kill, but, had a hissy fit, never to return.

I suspect, their reputable international agency, were worried about bad PR, from this blog.

Their head office, monitors the net, and had picked up my mention of their name, as a zero hour employer, in a Guardian comment, and, had banned me, from naming them on social media.

Such is the self- preservation, of our all-powerful, privatised monopolies.

The funding lady asked, if I  would consider, having Lodge Lady, and a new worker.

I told her to read my blog, and then objectively decide, whether, she would.

She replied she didn’t read blogs.

Issy was demanding juice, the bath was run….  I did not need this.

I mentioned all this.

Which she must have already been aware of from Issy’s shouts.

Eventually, I forced an exit.

But the phone rang 20 minutes later.

She had read my blog.

And  some points were incorrect.

It was not the Adult Social Worker, who had rung the GP, but her.

So much, then for her asking last week, what she could do, to rebuild my trust in the social services.

But, did not explain why the GP, had given the social workers name.

Nor why, the same social worker, rang us earlier reporting the lump.

Nor, why  this was so important.

Secondly, she said the blog incorrectly stated the support worker, had not discussed her concern, when she had.

I said, read the blog again.

The worker had pointed  out a non-existent bulge.

And then, when I, and the affable lady, had said it was pre period swelling, had said no more about it during the 4 hours that remained of her shift.

She had not pointed out,‘ a red mark, the size of a fist’ as was reported to the GP.

I couldn’t bear this  cross examining sophistry any longer.

And Issy needed attention.

Why was no one concerned about her ?

‘For the mother of God’, I cried.

And Issy on cue, decided the phone had to go back in its place, and grabbed it.

That night, I reflected, on what the GP had actually, been told.

I had been distracted by the impaction discussion, and the bulge comment.

I  analysed the reported ‘concern’,

‘A red mark on the side of Issy’s tummy, the size of a small fist’.

I realised, it  wasn’t  describing a bulge,

It  painted, a shocking picture, of abuse.

It could not be accidental, self-harm, or, neglect.

It was on  soft tissue.

It could only be…………… a punch.

And, as small, my fist,  as the primary carer, and most alone with Issy.

Wow…..

How might this be made to appear in court documents;

An education worker, who had formed a good relationship with Issy over several weeks of support, and, had just managed to get her out of the house for the first time in 9 months, noticed a red, fist sized mark on the side of Isabel’s stomach.

She pointed it out to her mother, who ignored her.

So she reported it to the social services, who rang the parents, but they would not let them see Isabel, so they rang the GP, but the parents also refused the GP’s request to come to their home and examine her.

The GP, now very concerned for Isabel’s safety, arrived at their home, he was verbally attacked by the mother, didn’t manage to  examine Isabel, as she refused to undress, or cooperate.  (but did see her running around happy not in pain).

The mother then refused any more support, or engagement with the social services’.

I had walked right into that one…..

If I did nothing, as photos can be air brushed, this would be taken, as irrefutable evidence of a vicious assault.

And we would be cut out of Issy’s life for ever.

The LA would have their £6,000 +a week, cash and pharma cashcow, the Lodge Lady a career path, a loving devoted mother  destroyed, and a father heartbroken, never to see their child again unsupervised.

And Issy doomed to live in an abusive hell, alone.

Such is evil.

Such is morality.

Such is adult state protection costing millions

And  the danger of care/education workers.

I rang the GP, apologised, and, asked him round to try to re -examine Issy…..

He arrived but did not touch her stomach only viewed for marks

Yet recorded later in Issy’s medical notes that there was no hot bulge on her stomach.

Summary

Education workers mentions Issy’s stomach bulges on one side

other workers agrees with me that due to her due period.

Not mentioned again by Education Worker to me during rest of her shift

Education Worker notifies social worker ‘Issy has red mark size of small fist on her stomach’

SW rings GP attends , observes Issy’s stomach but does not touch her.

Yet records in notes hot bulge at side of stomach with no explanation/follow up

Neither worker is ever seen again.

LA Complaints Service Manager Meeting -Is the End Nigh ?

We lodged a formal complaint on the LA’s website in June.

Had two meetings, with our social worker, and, her boss.

The conclusion of which was a letter whitewashing our complaints.

I replied at length, and, asked for a stage 2 referral to the ‘independent’ investigator.

But, did not get to stage 2

Instead, in September, I received a letter from the LA  services manager,

‘I would like to take the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your complaint and to try and resolve any issues that you have’.

Two weeks ago, she arrived by black, soft- topped sports car, Porsche?, black be suited, in my kitchen.

We had managed to get Issy up, and almost in the bath, but the lady’s early arrival, spooked her, and, she retreated, naked, into her bedroom.

The lady began the meeting, by going through the complaints process,

despite my use of it, and, its presence on the internet.

And said, she had come,

to talk to some of our issues that we were still left with.’

We had been left, with all ‘ our issues’.

Physical, emotional abuse and neglect of Issy in her NAS School.

No support for the first 3 months on her returning home.

And then, no respite, no school, inadequate, spying support.

An ‘independent’ living ‘education’ package, that had traumatised Issy,

by telling her, she could not live with Mummy  and Daddy,

And resulted in her reignited PTSD, and refusal to leave the house.

My fabricated illnesses notified to GP by social services.

Incorrect, sexed up core assessments, portraying us, as abusive, neglectful, inadequate parents.

And, our support/education was now non-existent.

No support for over two months, and, an education package,6 months in the making,

Which had commenced two weeks ago, but only consisted of a PR, 2 days a week, who had hardly appeared.

The be suited lady announced, she was in our kitchen to see;

What can we do to reach a resolution?

What do you want as a good outcome from the complaints process?’ ‘What can I do to resolve your complaint ‘

‘What can we do as a service to make sure we can support you?’

Anything, as we had no support.

Surely, after nearly 2 years of meetings, core assessments, she should know what we want, and, what her services should have done, and, were now not doing ?

These, were thoughts only, as her out-pouring, was merely an explanation, of her function.

It was the usual, I speak, you speak, prescribed, communication.

But finally, the shocker,

‘I don’t know the detail. I have chosen not to look at the record’.

I felt, at this point, the need to point out, that this was a big mistake, if she, were here to investigate our complaints.

So dared to ask, Why  she had ‘chosen not to look at the record.

I wanted to come with an open agenda’.

I’ve come to listen to you as a couple, to be clear as to the outcome you want’.

After letters forms and two meetings she still did not know?

I have come to have a dialogue, with you before I can respond’.

She continued,

But a dialogue, is a two way process.

And, she had, ‘chosen not to look at the record’.

So how could her visit clarify, and resolve?

No, it was the usual.

We do all the talking. All is de novo.

All is futile.

We were expected to go through our complaints, together, with the latest ones.

All already gone through ad nauseam, with her subordinates, orally, and, in writing.

Our time, as always, wasted to justify ‘service’, and salaries.

Exasperated, we filled her in on our previous, and, only agency support,

but, trained to be ever positive, she interrupted with,
so the previous agency support worked well’.

Even our social worker, admitted, it was not ‘the most appropriate’, after Issy refused to go out.

This lady did not appear to know, it had broken down, or why,

or, even, that Issy no longer left the house with anyone.

But as per her two subordinates, in their complaints meetings,

She did know enough to suggest, ‘someone’, ‘do some work’ with Issy, to try to reassure her, she would return home, if she went out.

And, as we had already told her subordinates, obviously, this had been done by ourselves, and, several, different workers.

The team leader, in her complaints meeting, had remained silent, on the qualifications of this ‘someone’.

But our social worker had let slip, it was a psychologist.

Could this be the last piece of documentation, they needed for a deprivation of liberty order, to remove Issy from home?

When we pointed out, Issy had been traumatised, by the push into independent living.

She said,

‘So, you as parents, are now saying, at this moment in time, you don’t want her in independent living’.

It appeared, even ours, and Issy’s basic wishes, were unknown to her.

Or more likely, irrelevant.

What can I do in terms of the complaint investigation?

Continued, her rhetorical plea.

Investigate, one would assume.

After an hour of this, Issy emerged from her bedroom, opposite the kitchen, naked.

She spotted my coffee, through the kitchen glass door, came in, drank it, and retreated.

The lady asked,

Does Issy struggle to wear her clothes?’.

More exasperation.

‘No. She was just going into her bath when you arrived.’

As with the trainee social worker, a little knowledge of ‘autism’, did not go a long way.

She assumed autistics, and therefore Issy, had problems keeping their clothes on.

I explained, as I had done, on countless occasions, her bath time routine, and that she dressed herself afterwards.

But knew this was futile.

She had spotted, what she was looking for, an intervention issue.

Issy didn’t keep her clothes on, and we allowed it.

Just as her scratches, had been self-harm, or abuse, to the education funding lady.

The lady then left, saying she would respond in writing.

She did a week later, but not about our complaints, that letter, has yet, to arrive.

‘I do feel I need to raise again the issues that led to me ending our meeting earlier than anticipated, (it hadn’t) namely the fact that Isabel did come into the kitchen naked and your response to me when I asked the question if this was normal behaviour for Isabel (it wasn’t, she was getting in the bath), and if she struggled to remain clothed. I asked this question as I am aware of many young people with autism do have difficulty in wearing certain items of clothing. My question was not intended to be a criticism of your parenting, However it did concern me that neither parent attempted to encourage Isabel to dress, given there was a complete stranger in the home who had not met Isabel before and the potential impact of this upon her dignity’.

So, the LA Services Manager, charged with investigating our formal complaints, that social services, were deliberately creating evidence of abusive, and, inadequate parenting.

Had decided, our not encouraging, our autistic, upset daughter to dress, before she got into her bath, was evidence of emotional abuse, and, a protection issue.

And, the much pushed ‘work to be done on Issy’, to supposedly, get her out, was now to be enforced;

‘ I believe we need an urgent assessment of Isabel’s mental health to assist the LA in determining the best support package for Isabel and I have requested the Social Workers involved with Isabel discuss this in more detail with you so we can work together to achieve this.’

Confirming my suspicions, that the LA, were determined to assess Issy’s ‘capacity’,  which as, with our adult services assessment, and her NHS funding, was to be obtained by stealth, on a different pretext.

As, what other purpose could this ‘assessment’ serve?

Our social worker, could not find a care agency willing to support us.

So what ‘care package’, could this assessment lead to?

Only independent living, or, a mental hospital, or ATU.

A psychologist, and a psychiatrists assessments in 2012, when Issy was 7 stone, poo impacted, with two rotten teeth in her NAS school, had merely resulted in antidepressants, which made her worse.

And what would happen, if we did not allow such an ‘assessment’?

The letter continued;

’ Given the difficulties of our meeting (we were concerned that she knew nothing about our complaints, or are present lack of support, and had a naked daughter about to bathe).I would want to re-iterate that the LA are committed to working in partnership with parents and carers and our current intervention with your family is to provide appropriate support to maintain Isabel in your care, unfortunately this does not to be your beliefs are around our intervention. I would want to stress that the LA would only consider looking at a placement for a young person away from their family home if there is concern for that young person’s welfare and if parental engagement cannot be maintained.’

Plenty of choice there then….

This was a simple process, which would be completed.

Even if, it was, by the person charged with investigating our complaints.

Poor Issy, poor us.

Another photo, on yet another petition, never to laugh, or be free again, a tortured, captive cash, and pharma cow, with tortured, powerless parents.

Doomed to living hells for life.

But, what profit she would make, at least £3,500 per week, without the pharma, and therapy kickbacks.

And no one cares.

There’s a thought for Christmas……

Rip off of Disabled Care and Education

Over the past two years, I have been deceived, and manipulated.

But most of all, ignorant, of the Local Authorities, and Government’s policies, for the mentally disabled.

Through my experiences, and being a lawyer, I have researched, the law, and practice, of the despicable, clandestine, ruthless policies, initiated, by our last government.

Now implemented by our present, with the help of charities, care agencies, courts, and Local Authorities.

They, not only exploit, our most vulnerable, that should, in a civilised society, be our most protected, but, use our money to do so.

So in this post, I would like to share with you, how this is happening, so at least, parents can be forewarned.

Naively, I thought what our government meant, by privatisation of welfare, was personalised budgets, where families would be provided with lists of carers.

Rather like rated.dot. Com carer, and be able to choose, and employ the right ones, with the help of an administration charity.

But I now realise, personalised budgets, were always doomed to fail, as logistically, there is no effective system, to find carers.

With a maximum of 7.50 per hour, and the LA bureaucratic red tape, the system, is no more than a sop, to real privatisation.

The term, has been hijacked, by the personalised services  money, being paid to spying support packages, over which the consumer has no control.

Our government’s privatisation, is privatised monopoly corporate care agencies, run for maximum profit , cultish, on message, employing, a sea of itinerant, zero hour workers often immigrants.

Or, small ad hoc care agencies, and education packages, on a commercially aware basis, desperate for your ‘pot of money’, paid to them, and controlled by the Local Authority.

‘Education’, has  been privatised, under EHCs, for those with special needs, after 16.

SEN statements no longer exist, replaced by ad hoc, on message public/ private partnerships, combining social care with ‘independent’ skills training to encage.

After 16, there are no longer schools.

Or respite centres, as a home from home.

Or day centres, to meet up with chums.

Do not let anyone, try to convince you this is about cost cutting.

This is about redirecting, the money, we pay in taxes, to fund our public services, into large corporate monopolies, some owned by venture capitalists, outsourcing companies, or self preservatory charities, on a ‘sustainability’ basis, recycling profits tax free ,who service the social care, and independent living industry.

It is an orchestrated rip off, not only of our taxes, but of our statutory rights.

These corporations, are basically out sourcing companies ie employment agencies, easily disposable, and unaccountable; they can rip off and disappear, and reappear, under another name.

‘Independent living’ for life, is in secret, there are no spy cameras, complaints are futile, and, the Care Quality Oversight a tick box exercise.

So social ‘care’ is the perfect business model.

Our government’s privatisation has already ripped off probation, prison and court translation service by SERCO, and soon our child protection service, and courts.

In breach of the disabled, and their families human rights to a family life, and freedom from oppression, and inhumane treatment, Carers Act, Equality Act, Autism Act, and Education Act.

But, as these rights, cannot effectively be enforced, they can be ignored.

Encagement, under the Mental Capacity Act 2005, is the biggest, and most draconian weapon.

Since August 2013, applications to the court of protection for deprivation of liberty orders by LAs, have risen over 60%, but not, the number of judges.

Who continue to complain of impossible case loads.

Courts, are effectively forced, to rubber stamp applications, relying on the presumed paternalism of the LA, that ‘independent’ 24/7 supervised living, will always be in a person’s ‘best interests’.

To maximise profit for the Local Authority,‘incapacity’ is being too liberally, and, therefore illegally applied.

It is generally accepted, that the MCA, is not doing what it was intended to do, or is it?

We have the terrible conflict of interest, that the more severe the disability, the less the capacity, and the more the need to encage, and the greater the profit from ‘care’.

Making it not in the LA’s interests, to provide adequate care, for the disabled.

As the more distressed, a vulnerable person is made, by their ‘care’, or removal from home, the more evidence, the LA get of their’ incapacity’,so its win win.

My daughter is a prime example.

Since 2013, £200,000 had been spent on her.

A million, on her 5 yr 6 month NAS home, despite her being a third of the time, at home/holiday.

Her education regressed, her teeth rotted, faeces impacted, she suffered PTSD, had had no school,nor any overnight respite away from home.

Care and education, has made my daughter, ripe for processing under the Mental Capacity Act.

SEN has been replaced by a 75 million government fund, to provide bespoke ‘education’ packages

Anyone, and everyone, can set up such packages, but will have to be in with the LA to be paid.

Their quality appears unaccountable, as the LA commission the service, it has a vested interest, in finding it fit for purpose, and would be liable, if it were not.

The parents have little say, the threat, of loss of access to their children silences them, and, complaints are futile.

Legal action, for breach of statutory duty, without legal aid and the risk of court and LA costs, is impossible.

Education provision, does not appear subject to any oversight.

My own experience of such education packages, was not good.
.
We were lead to believe, that my daughter at 16, would attend a named local special needs school, and a teacher from the school assessed her.

I assumed under SEN.

A teacher from our local special needs school, attended our home in June 2013, for what was ‘termed’ an assessment of Issy.

But consisted of my filling her in, on the dire regression in her reading and writing, her one and a half million ‘special needs’ provision had produced.

She said nothing as to how, where, or, what our daughter would be taught.

I had asked, would it be in her school building, she replied not usually, inferring lack of space.
.
Then,in the September’s Children in Needs Meeting, I was introduced to a man from XY, I was not told his function, and thought him a general overseer, and actually nicknaming him, the ‘umbrella man’.

At the end of this meeting, he discussed Isabel’s ‘education’, which he said would commence mid October, with an assistant teacher from the said local school, and, an existing agency care worker.

I thought Isabel was being phased into the named local special needs school,eventually attending fulltime until 18/25.

Instead, her education consisted of a twice weekly, 10.45.-3 pm, increased to 3 in January, outings.

Issy had lunch in a cafe, visits to a farm, two visits to the local school, and swimming.

The assistant teacher, showed me a picture of her classroom, and, I noticed there were computers stacked on the floor.

She provided Issy with a large cloth calendar with weather symbols, books from the local library, handcraft materials, but all had to be stored in our house, often it appeared the ‘classroom’, was not available, and locked.

I later found out, by looking at the address of the education provider’s office, that her ‘classroom’, was in fact a spare office in their headquarters.

And, a worker told me, Issy was often unhappy there, and office staff had complained of her noise.

There was no evidence of scholastic improvement, her ‘report’, stating she had acquired skills, she already had,like putting hat and coat on, carrying own bag, table manners, this package, supposedly, preparing her for her future ‘ independent’ living.

Making her even more profitable.

This ‘education’ was also used, to obtain evidence of parental incapacity, and/or neglect.

I was told, by a worker, that  the education workers,were spying on me, and discussing me in Costa coffee, after their education sessions, with their education package manager.

The education manager man asked me, ’Do you want us to continue to support Isabel ?’.

Confused I replied,’ You have a statutory duty to do so’.

Weeks later, he asked again.

I said, ‘You ’ve already asked me that’.

He said, ;Yes but you didn’t give me an answer’.

I said.’ is there any other option’.

He said, ‘He didn’t think so’.

The documentation sent, before our April Children in Need Meeting, said funding was in place until 2015 for this education package, but needed the parents’ consent.

Which, was why, he had pressed for my consent.

I withdrew my improperly implied consent, at a children in need meeting in April 2014.

The manager then took his workers, and left us without any support, or, Issy any ‘education’.

The same education package provider, has an internet site, and operates a drop in, for all parents with teenagers with behavioural problems, in confidence.

Desperate parents, reveal their problems, which, can then be used by social services, to show you cannot control and/or your parenting is abusive and/ or neglectful, and in your child’s best interests to live independently, and you  cut out of his life for ever, as an abusive/incapable/neglectful parent.

There is a conflict of interests here.

Your social worker will offer your child/ adult psychological help; this can then feed into their lack of capacity, and best interest’s reports, needed for a deprivation of liberty order.

Your social worker, will ask, as mine did, if you are depressed, anxious, and offer you psychological help, and you will be assessed.

And, as psychologists, are paid by the state, and want to continue to be paid, it is likely, their report will not be in your favour.

Depression, and anxiety, and by now, no doubt paranoia, can be easily diagnosed.

If you start suggesting illnesses, your unable to communicate child might have, they could add fabricated illness disorder, the newly named Munchausen.

Meanwhile, your on message GP, will want to examine you to ascertain present, or future health issues, that could affect parenting capacity, weight, age, diabetes, cholesterol, and, any conditions, you do actually have.

There is a similar modus, used, to obtain care orders, and as with the care courts, all is done in secret.

If you go to the media, you could be imprisoned for contempt, and, you will be gagged for life.

Gathering Evidence From Social Care.

bigstock-magglassTo obtain care, and/or deprivation of liberty orders, evidence of parental neglect,  incapacity, or safeguarding are needed, to show removal to state ‘care‘, is in a person’s ‘best interests’.

This evidence, also supports, ‘abuse’/ neglect, which will exclude parents, from  representing their child in court,

although there is no legal aid for this,

and almost invariably an Official Solicitor, will be appointed by the Court,

and, this is for the  life of the disabled loved one.

Legally, the definitions of such abuse/safeguarding issues are  vague, and expansive.

As left, to the  paternalism and power  of the Local Authority.

It includes inter alia, not providing a safe, healthy, clean living environment, medical care, sufficient/ appropriate food, and clothing, and emotional abuse eg isolation, derogatory comments, preventing a person reaching their full potential.

The agency workers,  kept a log of each shift, written without reference to me; the log book, the agency’s property.

The log pages of the meltdown in the city centre,  preceding Issy’s,  now 6 months indoors, had been ripped out.

Once full, the log book was removed.

But, our, now ex agency, had left, in such a hurry, an almost full book, remained on the kitchen table.

Yesterday, for the first time, I read it.

One entry, was made on the 15/8, 9.30-18.00.

A once weekly shift, recently extended, to allow  us a day out.

Written by the newly qualified social worker,  in my previous posts;

Her agency was paid at least £60 an hour just to provide her and she £25.

It was never explained why in these last two weeks of support a qualified social worker had been sent, this had not happened before excepting for the secret social worker sent overnight when I was supposed to have gone with all other family members to Wimbledon.

Isabel awake on arrival in bath. Bedding stripped and remade. Brushed Issy’s room. Issy had a bowel movement in the bath’.

The same worker, on shift the next day records,

‘ Bathroom cleaned after as Issy had a bowel movement whilst in the bath’.

The next day the trainee social worker, records, a more accurate, unspun version of the same event.

‘After about 2 hours we noticed she was incontinent of faeces, we prepare the bath’

Isabel had a tummy bug and the runs.

If, she defecates  in the bath, this suggests she is not toilet trained, (parental capacity), and is a safeguarding issue ( hygiene).

6 months earlier, our ‘education’ worker, had seen poo in Issy’s bath, from nighttime soiling.

The worker , hadn’t mentioned it..

But, afterwards had mentioned it to her ‘education’ boss.

In one of his weekly briefing, to obtain evidence of safeguarding/ parental incapacity etc.

I was only made aware of the purpose of these meetings when a worker told me these workers were meeting up in Costa Coffee  and discussing the house and mother and phone calls from the education boss clearly asking what I was doing were overheard.

And, the fact the boss had asked me  in the next children in need meeting.

Is Issy still pooing and peeing in the bath?

In 2007,Issy had slithered poo on the sofa, whilst sitting next to her GP.

Instead, of him, recognising, this as a sign of  an impaction.

He had  exclaimed in disgust,

‘Oh, she is still doing that, is she’.

At the time, I hadn’t  a clue what he had meant.

It was not until, I read the social services care application, where he stated he thought Issy, had  not been toilet trained, his comment made sense.

GPs, carers are trained to find only parental neglect and safeguarding issues, not the impactions, that nearly killed issy caused by their traumatic care.

Yet, he had not asked, or checked, if she was, and all services knew Issy had by then, been using  the toilet for over 6 years.

In fact, the GP was there, at our request, to find out what might be wrong with Issy, as she was distressed, behaving badly and slithering poo.

And,  was there to refer her to an endochronogist  for a bowel scan.

This made me think,  workers,  appeared to be looking for issues, mentioned in the 2007 social services application.

And the truth on an issue was irrelevant. All were briefed to look for and create safeguarding parental capacity issues only.

Issy’s undetected impaction, had resulted in bad behaviour, that had justified Risperidol medication,  and, an unassessed, 52 week, £177,000 per year NAS placement.

On seeing my mixing Issy’s Movicol, her social worker laughed, on my commenting Issy had the runs, and, remarked,

Well, that’s not going to help, is it ?’.

Indicating  I must be an idiot. ( parental incapacity)

But it was her who was ignorant, that  incontinence, was  a symptom of an impaction.

And, if I  did not administer  Movicol,  evidence of neglect.

Anyway, back to the log of the 15/8,

Removed last night’s tea from Isobel’s room into the kitchen. Isabel was trying to eat it . So we offered her other options. She asked for bread and butter and has eaten 1 and a quarter slices, packet of chocolate buttons’

Isabel had not been eating properly  for weeks, so we  left  supper in her bedroom, to encourage her to eat.

She had returned home in February 2013, 7 and a half stone, at 5ft 6 inches, and grown to 12 stone, within 3 months.

At the time of the log, she was nearly 11 stone.

It then occurred to me, another reason for Issy’s severe weight loss.

NAS’s policy, to remove food immediately from her room.

Staff had been reluctant to even go into her room.

And her food was sometimes put through the window.

One of our workers, had looked after Issy in her NAS home, and, recounted a shift, when she had been sent into Issy’s bedroom, to remove her food.

But unlike other staff, had taken the filling out of the nachos, to encourage her to eat .

Malnutrition, is evidence of neglect, but, only if you are a parent, not the state.

Back to the log, it continues,

There was blood and faeces up the door and units in Izzy’s bedroom supported to clean. It was also on the floor but we couldn’t find a mop and bucket to clean properly . So used a cloth and spray.’‘Kate has cleaned the kitchen due to issy trying to eat left over food, and moving staff around leading to blood being spread around .

Unhygienic living environment is a safeguarding issue.

We then later see the reason for this,

Isabel still refusing to put her pad on so I have to put a towel underneath her ( on her bed) because of her period’

They couldn’t get her to put her sanitary pad on.

‘Finola showed me the mop and bucket was kept outside’

Where the mops, had been kept, throughout this worker’ year’s support.

She walked past them on entering the house.

This was the same social worker, who had asked a month earlier for a second mop.

The log gets better,

Due to Issy’s weight loss her trousers were falling down I asked finola and seamus if they still had any clothes from the last time issy lost weight for her to use but they had been removed’.

These clothes, would in any event be too small, as side 8/10, Issys was now a 14/16.

There were clothes available in the draws, but the stack of clothes, I left out, had been used up.

Insufficient, or, inappropriate clothing, is evidence of neglect.

And better still.

‘Stripped bedding once again unable to wash due to no washing powder’

The ‘ once again’,referring to the missing mop.

On returning, I had got washing tablets left in the car.

What a pretty picture this paints for the court,

– inadequate clothing, washing facilities, filthy unhygienic bedroom , insufficient food , child eating left overs, old food left in bedroom.

If I were the judge, I’d  think this an inadequate home environment.

But reading between the lines, all it shows, is that the carers, could not cope with Issy, with the runs, and, a period, whilst I could, and had to.

And had, unlike the state,been encouraging her to eat.

Who would want ‘respite’, that removed your child to state ‘care’.

Where Issy, would be an unseen pin cushion, medicated, and, in nappies,

Where neglect, and abuse, is hidden, and, not deliberately fabricated.

Strangely, the log for October remained anodyne, with no mention of bed, and mop- gate, mentioned in later blogs.

One can only assume, workers had been told,

not to put me on notice, of their evidence gathering.
