Cardiff Social Services in Crisis
News that the child protection services in Cardiff are in crisis will come as no suprise to FACT members. It has been known for some time that it has been unable to fill child protection posts and it has been forced to recruit from abroad. The reasons for this are no doubt complex but it is is no co-incidence that recruitment has suffered in all those local authorities in which there have been major child abuse investigations. The fear of allegations and the fear of not being supported when wrongly accused is no doubt one of the principle reasons why Cardiff cant get staff.
