LBC radio asks Dr Charlotte Proudman whether family courts are removing children from terrorist sympathising parents


Yesterday the Justice Secretary called for family courts to remove children from radical extremist parents and place children in state care. Nick Ferrari of LBC radio asked Dr Charlotte Proudman how family courts can ensure children are safe from indoctrination within family homes.  As a family law barrister Charlotte explained the legal test required for children to be removed from their families; the need to ensure a link between parents’ extreme attitudes and the impact of holding such views upon children; and the necessity of working towards changing parents’ mindsets rather than removal, which should always be a last resort.
