Stop courts being able to grant care orders based on risk of future suffering
We believe current laws on removing children from parents are outdated and unjust. Currently a court can grant a care order removing children from their parents if they are 'likely to suffer harm'. This can mean children can be removed even if they have come to no harm. We believe this is wrong.
The laws need to be changed. The amount of children going into care has increased substantially in the last ten years. Some parents are going abroad to avoid the social services because they believe there is no alternative.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
