His Honour Judge Barham :
"There is little or no prospect of success. If one were to embark upon an assessment in person of [I]'s programme of work in respect of the parents, the prospect of a safe, successful and enduring reunification would be very unlikely".
"We can understand how the Court have made the findings and we understand the future welfare of the children is the utmost importance".
"We support the mother and father in their application for the children to be returned to them".
"In the event that the Court decides that the children should not be returned to their parents, we would like to put ourselves forward as carers of all three children".
"Without an understanding of what the children have experienced, both physically and emotionally, and what they require protection from, they will be unable properly to meet the needs of the children".
This is to certify that paragraphs 1 to 75 have been produced according to the procedure set out in the AVTS Quality System.
