Here’s what I just sent to all local authorities:
This is to ask for the procedures that are in place:
1. to ensure that COURT ORDERS for CONTACT with children in care are being complied with;
2. to allow parents to enforce orders for contact when they are not being adhered to;
3. to ensure that embassies and consulates are being informed when non-UK children are taken into care;
4. to arrange for Consular visits of non-UK children in care.
Finally, this is to alert you to the UK Delegation of parents who went to Brussels in support of our petition to Abolish Adoptions without Parental Consent on 19 March 2014.
Among a number of links reporting on the event, you may find this one the most informative: http://victims-unite.net/2014/04/12/brussels-video-clips-on-tv-portuguese-bbc-look-north-and-now-slovak-tv/
Looking forward to hearing from you,
