Researching Reform

Welcome to another week.

A new report published by charity Carers Trust suggests that at least 40,000 carers in the UK are aged eight or under.

The damning report highlights the way in which young carers are being ignored by government, leading to these children having to shoulder responsibilities which are leaving them with mental health difficulties and denying them their childhoods.

A summary of the charity’s recommendations is added below:

1. NHS England should issue guidance for services, clinical commissioning groups
and commissioners of specialist services on improving young carers’ access to
services and outcomes.
2. Local authority commissioners should increase the sustainability and stability of
young carers services and support partnership working between young carers

Our Submission To The McKenzie Friend Consultation

Researching Reform

It is only a short submission, with a couple of points, but we felt compelled to write to the Judicial Executive Board (JEB) to offer some thoughts on their current consultation on McKenzie Friends, their regulation and how the court system should treat them generally.

We are adding our email below:

Dear JEB,

My name’s Natasha and I run a child welfare project inside the family justice system called Researching Reform. As part of my work I offer assistance as a McKenzie Friend, however I do not charge. 

I would like to offer some thoughts on those McKenzie Friends in the Family Court who do not charge, but who rely on their clients to cover their travel costs and perhaps also a meal during the day if they are in court for any length of time. I am writing not on their behalf, or in their place, but as someone…

You cannot help another who will not help him- or herself

Parental Alienation

…that you cannot help another who will not

In the end, all souls must walk their path — and the
reason they are walking a particular path may not be
clear to us…or even to them at the level of ordinary
human consciousness.
Do what you can to help others, of course.  Show
love and caring whenever and wherever you can.
But do not get caught up in someone else’s “story”
to the point where you start writing it. 
Know what I mean?
