Let the "Tate" Girls Go Home sign now

The Tate Girls have been wrongly taken into care by social services, had their rights and their voices taken away from them, and need your help to be allowed to go home. Social Services get it wrong all the time - please scroll down for some links to other mistakes they have made.

The younger Tate Girl, who is atheist, has also been forced to attend a Catholic School and take part in religious assemblies; she needs your help to end this violation of her human rights.

The details:

The Tate Girls (not their actual name but Social Services operate a gagging enforcement that stops anyone from speaking out publicly) are two sisters aged 6 and 16 who have been taken from their loving family home by social workers in southeast England for no good reason. The entire case is based on false accusations and hearsay, and rather than working by the basic principle of innocent until proven guilty, social services have swept in and taken the girls against their wishes while they conduct their ‘investigation’.

The investigation is dragging on and on, going round in circles with no end in sight, no one is taking the girls’ wishes into account, and they are suffering where they are.


The facts:


THE GIRLS ARE NOT HAPPY OR SAFE IN FOSTER CARE


The girls were initially placed together, however they have now been separated and relocated after they gave evidence that the initial foster carer left the younger sister alone in the house, treated them both in an unacceptable manner, AND SLAPPED THE YOUNGER SISTER AROUND THE FACE. The decision to separate the sisters and to place the younger sister with no other children ensures that in future they cannot protect each other and that no one will corroborate the facts if this happens again.

All the girls want is to come home. They have done nothing wrong but are having their rights infringed upon and their wishes ignored.
Every accusation that has been made regarding the care of the girls is untrue.
There is no evidence to support any of social services’ claims, the girls come from a happy loving home, and the girls are desperate to be reunited with their mother. The family tick a large number of ‘minority’ boxes - the mother is not native to Britain (although has been naturalised), the girls are adopted from overseas, the girls have been home educated (yes, it is legal), the family are atheist, and they have been said by social services to follow ‘an alternative lifestyle’ (whatever that may mean). We believe that social services have jumped on these differences and decided to persecute the family in what boils down to a witch hunt because they don’t ‘conform’.


THE GIRLS ARE BEING KEPT AWAY FROM THEIR FRIENDS


It has been alleged by social services that the girls, who have been home educated, are isolated from their peers and denied social interaction. This is an ignorant knee-jerk reaction by social services, who think that home education involves sitting in a corner all day learning times tables by rote and never seeing the outside the world. In fact, until the girls were taken away from their family home, they had a large social circle and saw friends every day. Now they have been prevented from seeing any of those friends and are being cruelly socially isolated by social services. "Aimee Killjoy" (whose real name cannot be given for legal reasons), the social worker in charge of the case, has been contacted every day for the past two months by the parents of many of the girls’ friends regarding meeting up, but has done nothing about it. The girls’ friends constantly ask when they can see them, say they miss them, and don’t understand why they are being punished in this way.

The younger sister has been placed in a home with no other children, over twenty miles away from her home and friends, while the older girl has been left in temporary placement while trying to attend her first ever educational institute. Her mother offered to leave the family home so the older girl could be allowed to live at home, but social workers jumped upon this by claiming she isn't allowed to be in the family home and repeatedly threatening to call the police if this girl leaves foster care.


A HOME EDUCATED CHILD IS BEING SENT TO SCHOOL AGAINST HER WISHES


When the girls were taken, it was promised that the family’s preference for home education would be taken into account. It was dismissed almost immediately, and the younger sister, who has never been to school before, now attends full time. As if being taken to a new house, in a new town, and isolated from her mother and her friends were not enough, she now has to start school for the first time in her life with a group of total strangers. She tells her mother and sister she's embarrassed about going to school and that being home educated is much better.


AN ATHEIST CHILD IS BEING SENT TO CATHOLIC SCHOOL AND FORCED TO PRAY AND SING SONGS ABOUT JESUS AGAINST HER MOTHER'S EXPRESS WISHES


When it was revealed that the younger sister would be sent to school against her wishes and those of her family, her mother asked that at least her religious preferences be taken into account. It was then revealed that allegedly there were no places for the younger sister other than at a local Catholic school (even though children in care get placement priority). Despite requesting that at the very least she be withdrawn from religious assemblies and similar, the younger sister is coming home from school every day talking about God, Jesus and Mary, and singing hymns. This is just wrong. It is not only an example of the family’s wishes being ignored, it is also an example of prejudice against a religious viewpoint not considered "politically correct enough" - if the Tate family had been Muslim or Jewish or Hindu, there is simply no way she would have been expected to attend a school espousing a different religion and take part in worship.
