Social workers

The voice of experience. We know there is a massive problem here. Time and again we get confirmation of it, yet no one in authority seems to be able to do anything about solving it – not the judges, not the lawyers, not the MPs, nor even the Boy.

But ignoring a problem does not make it go away. This is not going to go away, and the longer it is left, the more chances there are that irreversible damage will be done to the very fabric of society.

To paraphrase a familiar saying: you can ignore all of the people some of the time; you can ignore some of the people all of the time; but you cannot ignore all of the people all of the time. We will be heard.
