Victims of domestic violence or rape are targeted. A mother whose ex-partner was jailed for raping her lost both children – guilty of “failing to protect them”. Another, pregnant after being raped by her ex-partner, tried to kill herself when he got custody of the child. Another who said the father abused the child was accused of a “false allegation” – he got the child. Having lost their children, mothers are charged to see them – £45 an hour for supervised contact.
