Ofsted inspection of CafCass

The link is to Ofsted's analysis of cafcass which includes statements such as:

In another case an 11-month-old child was said to be too young to appreciate “the political significance of his circumstances”. Far too many reports were based on opinion, not evidence, and many were full of errors. Analysis of facts was poor, with advisers too often jumping to conclusions. In many cases inspectors had no idea how Cafcass advisers reached their recommendations.

It is interesting how CSCI never picked up on any of this.

Cafcass Guardian Ad Litem Under Rule 9.5 has chosen to ignore all feelings of our 6 and 3 year olds and has in a span of 3 months without assessment said I have a psychological dysfunction and a personality disorder. When I complained she victimised me. Then when she was not available and my barrister saying I should not expect much input from Cafcass, I asked other agencies to support us and she intervened and told them so much of the case that it scared them off. She is now off to read social services' records to ascertain what I might have conveyed to them as she is bent on removing the residency of the children from my care to father's without any justification.

Yet she is untouchable with my solicitor and barrister saying "she is a difficult woman", "Try and get her on your side", etc. This nightmare is worse than the alleged abusive relation I fled from.

Judges do not like Cafcass practitioners challenged and rely heavily on their so called expertise. In my experience two practitioners from one office - teh latest GAL having no case management plan, no planned interventions, no transparency in her decison making, very cagey and manipulative. The case examples she shared with me are worrying with views like "children adopted by gay couples don't have as much of a life chance as those who have a relationship with their biological parents", etc.

Very worrying indeed!

Statement re False Allegations Campaign

Many people will know that my family and I have been subject to a campaign of false allegations by Esther Baker for the past 4 1/2 years. Yesterday there was a court judgment Baker v Hemming [2019] EWHC 2950 (QB) which formally confirmed that the allegations were false. Esther Baker, who had brought a libel claim against me, dropped her defence of Truth to my counter-claim and was taken by the judge as no longer trying to prove her allegations. Due to Baker's various breaches of court rules and orders, she has been barred from further repeating her allegations even in the court proceedings. Further claim of mine in libel against Baker are ongoing. There is a good summary in the Daily Mail here.

This demonstrates the challenge in fighting false allegations in today's Britain. A substantial campaign was built up to promote allegations which had no substance to them. Various Labour MPs and in pa…

Statement re false allegations from Esther Baker

Statement by John Hemming
I am pleased that the Police have now made it clear that there has been a concerted effort to promote false criminal allegations against me and that the allegations had no substance whatsoever.
I would like to thank Emily Cox, my children, Ayaz Iqbal (my Solicitor), my local lib dem team and many others who supported me through this dreadful experience. There are many worse things that happen to people, but this was a really bad experience.
It is bad enough to have false allegations made about yourself to the police, but to have a concerted campaign involving your political opponents and many others in public creates an environment in which it is reasonable to be concerned about ill founded vigilante attacks on your family and yourself. Luckily there was a more substantial lobby to the contrary as well, which included many people who were themselves real survivors of abuse, which has helped.
I am normally someone who helps other people fight injustice. …
