Brian McNair, chairman of the Equal Parenting Alliance, took part in a protest outside a 1-day conference for Social Services Directors on 25/3/09. He later spoke to the Evening Telegraph about the need for greater involvement of grandparents

“I hope the social workers, especially Alan Baird, take note. You have to be seen to be heard nowadays. We hope this brings our message into the public eye.
“We are questioning the integrity of some social workers across the country. They often do not record meetings they have with grandparents. This is not right. “If grandparents are in contact with their grandchildren they can see the signs of abuse, but the social services class them as irrelevant.”
