Many people I have spoken to have been a victim of false allegations to people as such as social services and nspcc. These organisations have to check out every report whether it’s a ex partner someone you have fallen out with or a stranger I understand there practices and why they have to be done. However what is stopping anyone picking up the phone and making false reports about anyone. Coming from personal experience of having 6 reports made anonymously in the space of 3 months on every occasion social services have stated they have no concern and someone is being malicious. How can people get away with this. On one occasion my sons school was contacted as well as my midwife and housing association to make sure that we weren’t living in a tent as a report suggested this it’s degrading and embarrassing when there wasn’t nothing wrong.The point I am making is that it is illegal to make a fake call to 999 however there is no punishments for making false reports to social services which wastes both parties time let alone services that could be used elsewhere. I don’t understand how saying a child is in danger when they aren’t is any difference to false report to social services. 

My mental health suffered through all of this. It is not fair that people can do this and I know I’m not the only one who feels like this. A punishment for people who do this would deter them from doing it. Let’s make a change together!!
