Massive increases in child protection orders reveal by shocking government figures, 300 cases per day extra compared to 10 years ago. This makes in Total more than 500 per day!
Councils, across the UK, concerned for children, are stretched to the limits financially. The Government has taken no notice of warnings issued by bodies such as the LGA, that there will be a funding gap of £2billion by 2020. Priorities for this callous Government don't seem to include children. It wouldn't surprise me if a council went bust over such demands placed on it, i don't suppose it will be the Tories fault though!
