It's awful to see the reality of kids who no one really cares about. As i left for the w end today I got involved in an awful situation with a CIC who's placement had broken down. He was restrained. Police called. Just so upsetting to see. It's often a friday/xmas/summer. School offers them so much support and stability but we're not 24 hours. Made me sad 😣

It is hard to see sometimes I agree. But I've also seen so many children in care who flourish with great carers, going from strength to strength.

Yes. I think this had to happen to get the support and placement sorted. Such a shame

This is the hardest part of the job, for me at least. To be fair for us not CIC (who are generally in a safer place), but the kids in crisis who probably should be removed. I find it quite hard emotionally, especially when managements priorities are not matching with the best interests of the child.
