NSPCC Failing Children

Post  Guest on Tue 23 Sep - 5:59

Many of us have been appalled by the seeming complicity of the NSPCC with the T9 child neglectors but they appear to be failing many children, especially those children who phone Childline themselves and their calls are unanswered.

With fundraisers of charities getting salaries around the £100.000 per annum mark and a considerable amount of donations going on admin, these dire statistics didn't surprise me -

Last year, 15,000 calls out of 95,000 made to the Helpline went unanswered. The charity aims to improve that statistic by training more counsellors and encouraging people to take action sooner through the appeal.

The appeal will also raise money for the NSPCC's ChildLine service, which last year had 2.5m calls with 900,000 going unanswered.

How young is too young to be home alone?

At what age is it safe, or sensible, to leave a child at home on his own, or in charge of younger siblings - and what does the law say?

Eileen Hayes, the NSPCC's parenting adviser. “I once left my baby in the car for a brief time and when I came back, a policeman was waiting for me,” she says. “It's not illegal but it was embarrassing, and if anything had happened I'd have been done for neglect.

Exactly St. Gerald, and it's for that reason that the McCann lot protect each other.

When I was working, my experience of the NSPCC was that it was a good organisation, but it is a charity and therefore able to decide for itself what it would, or would not cover. If a member of the public phoned them and it was a case which, for whatever reason they did not wish to act on, they took the details and passed it on to social services who had a statutory duty to investigate. Because they have no legal obligation to carry out anything, they do not have to provide cover at nights and weekends and can pick which areas of child protection work they will concentrate on. It is easier to attract staff if they can work in such fields as staff training, fundraising and publicity etc. The local authority I worked for actually paid the NSPCC to run training programmes for their own social workers. All valid stuff but a world away from the basic need to get staff out doing the nitty gritty of confronting adults accused of cruelty etc.
I am not knocking them, they need to raise money to exist, unlike local authority social workers who are paid by the government, but their ads are a tad misleading IMO.
