Since the Baby P case hit the headlines in late 2008, there has been a significant rise in the number of children in England being taken away from their parents and put into care. Bristol social worker Anne Farmer explains what the marginal care cases look like. Matt Dunkley, President of the Association of Directors of Children's Services, and Christina Blacklaws, a lawyer specialising in this area, debate what the trend means. #care #children #SocialWork ##childrenincare #BabyP
