Fabricated Induced Illness

TO READ OUR REPORT please click here
The Parent and Carer Alliance has been shocked by the number of calls we have received from families outlining serious and very damaging allegations of fabricated and induced illness and/or abuse of their children. It is especially worrying that these allegations concern children with complex needs who often require support from Social Services, Health and Education.In order to both support families coping with this situation and to also bring about positive change in the future, the Parent and Carer Alliance has gathered evidence to establish how many families have suffered from this treatment, how these situations occur, and who is involved.

The work of the Parent and Carer Alliance is being broadcast on Radio 5 live on Sunday 10th March at 11 am, with our Advocate Duncan, and some of the families affected, taking part in the broadcast. To find out more please click here
