Sample text

One typical case is of a child in care and his family. They want increased access as does the child but social services are limiting this at present and applying supervised contact arrangements. Another one is in relation to someone seeking political asylum. He’s been here ten years but the battle goes on. A further case is a mother who alleges rape against her ex-partner. And yet another is a mother who sustained a severe beating witnessed by her four children, who came to the centre – a very complicated case.

Yesterday I had a parent coming in – the partner and her had split up and she asked if she could discuss this so I took her in the meeting room. She was telling me that if the partner came, we couldn’t release the child; there was violence and the child had been distressed. She stayed for a while and sat with the child, and I spent an hour or so talking with the parent, going through it all, she was telling me the problems. Then she went away and the father rang two hours later wanting to see the child.

It is important to acknowledge the extent of the need that continues to exist within society. What the testimonies also do is define for us how the Sheffield Children’s Centre meets those needs for adults, young people and children. In this, we begin to see the flexibility and responsiveness that underpins the services, and that arise out of the non-judgemental, nonstigmatising ethos that they have worked so persistently to engender and that pervade the heartland. The centre is recognising and acting upon a belief that it is virtually impossible to support the child’s rights to equal access and to a high-quality experience unless support is also offered for the family unit as a whole.
