Westminster Dialogue

Monday November 13th, 2pm, 7 Millbank, Westminster

Sponsored by Dr. Sarah Wollaston, MP

How best to remedy an unjustified denial of contact?

Is this a case of the system’s failure to protect children from ‘harm’

Is early intervention the answer to the problem of delay?

Do we need a more effective protocol between the courts and social service / police to improve safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults?

Should there be withdrawal of court fees where allegations of harm are being made?
