Working with many parents who have been accused of fabricated and induced illness you get to think that there are certain traits that those parents exhibit that attract professionals to make false allegations. So we at Fiightback decided to make a survey to see if there are any patterns in those parents accused of fii.
Those accused of Fii are overwhelmingly female
Out of those 165 respondents accused, 29% had a disability, 30% chronic illness and 10% are autistic. This is despite Scope reporting that only 19% of working age adults have a disability (which includes chronic illness and asd). This shows a huge problem with ablesim within social care.
Those who are accused are overwhelmingly well educated
This is only slightly above average though as the office on national statistics reports that 27% of adults have a degree.
One overwhelming trend is that those who are accused often work in healthcare (and are the barred from ever working in that field again because they have a criminal record due to child protection proceedings). Here we can see 16% worked in education (another career choice affected by false allegations) and 25% work in healthcare.
