Local councils forced to drastically up spending on child refugees 'The gvt is paying lip service. We hear bold speeches in Parliament about the UK doing a good job supporting child refugees, but a total lack of willingness to meet the costs'

This is a thought provoking article and for me emphasises the need for leadership routes outside of management and through expertise ⁦⁩ ⁦⁩ I’m leaving social work, but I wish it wasn’t this way

Following a Times article that describes Shamima Begum as “bloodthirsty and fanatical”,  sexual violence trainer and campaigner Sara Amanda asks why is grooming and vulnerability not part of the discussion?

Is Sajid Javid so desperate to appeal to far right & populist voters that he’s willing to split mum and child? Do British BME parents, under this govt, not have the same rights as white British parents?

I think Sajid Javid has made a really bad decision to strip Shamima Begum of her citizenship.

Child grooming is not just related to sex gangs and trafficking. It is linked to radicalisation and gang affiliation.

This is a remarkable book on how “data-driven innovation” can be a terrible thing for marginalised communities. Beautiful writing and an utterly compelling argument.

. has stripped of her citizenship. A British girl who left this country as 15yo, who lost 2 children in the last 3 yrs and who now has a new baby, just a few days old. How can he be so threatened by a 19yo new mum? Citizenship is conditional 4 BME ppl.

Replying to @Zubhaque
’s case - once again shows that if you’re BME in this country you’re AT RISK of being stripped of your British citizenship. It doesn’t matter if you’re naturalised, have dual citizenship or have indefinite leave to remain.

Good to see that cases are finally getting media attention, the message is important. It’s equally important that we talk about it accurately! This abuse is not ‘through Witchcraft’ it is in fact ‘linked to a Belief in Witchcraft or Spiritual Possession’.

Some of the people we have listened to described cruel treatment from their time in : children being forced to carry soiled linen, having their hair cut off, having family visits cancelled at the last minute... Only by listening - and taking action - can this be stopped.

More than 1,000 teenagers were admitted to hospital with a knife wound last year as the number of serious stabbings surged, prompting doctors to warn of the strain that this places upon the NHS. In 2018 more than 40 blade offences were committed in London every single day.

One was going to a PRU centre for only an hour a day, while another was simply told to go to a boxing gym instead of the classroom. All had different circumstances at home.
