Sinead Ward is referred to the Community Learning Disability Team by the Gypsy and Traveller Support Service, as they believe that she has a learning disability and is in need of community care services from the local authority. They report that Sinead is the mother of two young children, Mary aged two and Michael aged four, from a previous relationship; but she is also pregnant again with the man she is currently living with. This man, Martin Phillips, appears to be 'more able' than Sinead and the support service are concerned that this may be an abusive relationship as Sinead has reported that Martin does not want her seeing her parents and 'looks after' her money for her. It is Martin's flat in which they live.

On the same day a referral is made to the same local authority children's referral and assessment team concerning Sinead's eldest child, Michael. The referral comes from Michael's school where a teacher noticed some marks on Michael's legs. When asked what had caused the marks Michael said he had fallen over; but the teacher did not think the injuries were consistent with a fall, believing them to be welts from a belt or something similar. The school also express concerns about the mother Sinead Ward; as they do not think, as a result of her impaired cognitive ability, she should be bringing up her children.
