Whilst making my first documentary for BBC1 'When a Mother's Love is Not Enough', I exposed the battles that families face to get the basic care for their children. I saw just how isolated they are, how little help they get, and how exhausted they become in fighting to get what should be given to their children as an absolute right. I have received e mails from families and carers across the country, desperate for help, and highlighting the lack of frontline services. There is a lack of commonsense, an absence of compassion and a labyrinthine bureaucracy which is almost impossible to navigate. Initiatives spew out of Whitehall, but none of the money, or the services, seems to reach the families who are most in need. There is much to be done.
