Fiightback originated as a small secret group about seven years ago after a numbers of us were accused. We found each other and supported each other. We found other groups that supported us and we slowly grew in number.
After the Royal college of nursing published the fii masterclass slides a small number of accused and non accused mums saw the need to expand the group and start campaigning against the flood of accusations that were coming in and fiightback was born June 2017.
We offer peer support to those accused of Fii and seek to raise awareness of the issue and the epidemic of false accusations. We iwll also support those where there may be some basis to the claims, as at present, there is no support put in place for these individuals who are suffering from a mental illness, but are met with criminal proceedings.
Most of all we will listen to your circumstances and not pass judgement on you and assist you to work with services in order to hopefully gain the best outcome for the children.
As a rule we do not do anything without your permission. We believe it is very important that you feel in control. We do not share your information/story with anyone without your permission.
We value the trust of parents who feel betrayed by those who should help and support.
At fiightback we spend 80% of our time fighting mistruths, assumptions and misunderstandings, these are used to build cases against families our first aim is that social workers wear cameras. This would save an incredible amount of time, money and heartache. We aren't asking for the system to be in our favour only that its fair and a true representation for each family put forward.
We are calling for the current fii guidelines to be reviewed with a common sense attitude. Under the current guidelines anyone could be accused which leaves it open to abuse, you will see in our blogs that many cases start following a complaints of malpractice, child abuse or failure of services to comply with SEND legislation.
We are also ask for NICE to create a pathway for those cleared of fii, to rebuild the doctor patient trust and stop multiple accusations.
Currently each social services has its own interpretation of the national guidelines and there are vast differences- we ask for one set of guidelines to be used nationally.
Stop the current Fii masterclass pushing the epidemic of mistruth
