Voice for vulnerable children and adults

We would like to bring to attention the shortfalls in the justice system in reguards to child neglect and abuse when a child is in the care of a restpite care provider, Our son William, who is nearly Six years of age, non verbal, and has been diognosed with Classic Autism and significant learning difficulties; sustained non-accidental bruising, in February 2017, which were proven to be multiple bite marks on his left arm, shoulder, and back. The A&E department failed to take scale photographs of Williams injurys, which lead to the forensic dentist to be unable to look at the photographs. Without such crucial evidence, the police were unable to prove who of the Two suspects caused the injurys and are unable prosecute the perpetrators, as it would not stand up in court, this then bought the investigation to a standstill. There are apparently Two suspects, but the police cannot take this to court as they do not know which of the Two suspects caused the bruising. If both could be taken to court and held accountable we would possibly of got  the answers we grately needed. The case is closed and there is no further action taken. William is unable to tell us who has harmed him, and his behaviour has been massively effected.
All A&E departments should follow the correct procedures in suspected abuse cases, not to mention when children with disabilities are involved. In 2017, this type of abuse should not be disriguarded and the persons responsible let off.
The justice system needs to change.. Why should these people walk away . We will not and cannot rest until we make a change  for vunrable children and adults  because we are there  voice. Please sign this petition to change protocols in our system
