We are writing as we have set up a new support website for families in scotland who have lost their children to care.
Our aim is to support the parents and fight for justice also we offer a name and shame area for professionals and the public.
We want the media and local groups to support us. We have only just launched the site and many features are to be added. We feel we offer a unique service which currently doesn't exsist in scotland at present (like our english partners down south we will help families get justice name and shame people who have lied and hold them accountable for their actions).
The founder of 'pigs' is a man who lost his children to the care system in scotland but child stealing by the state is happening every day - so is cover ups by high profile people - we hope your media outlet hasnt been gagged for reporting the truth.
We are also looking for community groups to share website links with us and families to have their say on our website.
For the Sake of all children let us have our say please.
We have been created by the need to fight widespread social care injustice and abuse of draconian state power. Children are being ripped from their parents simply because they are considered "unconventional" or even single.
Just like pigs we rootle under the surface to find those golden nuggets of truth hidden beneath half truths, targets, idealised aims and a "not my decision" culture. In fact, we are the truffle P.I.G.S. of the social care world.
Our aim is to help and support parents who have lost their children through spurious reasons. Low income, untidy house, learning difficulties, bad diet, disorganised lifestyle or a perceived non cooperation with social services.
The worst thing about the whole rotten business is that the children pay for the rest of their lives. And it doesn't stop there. Their children end up suffering too. Three generations affected by inept decision making, it's beyond criminal.
So please get in touch however hopeless and battered you feel. We can and will make a difference to you and your children.
