Sue Baker's view...

Collette Elliott can regrettably compare her case to that of Baby P or Daniel Pelka – only she managed to survive her abusive childhood. She too slipped through the net and now, a grown woman with children of her own, she campaigns for other child abuse victims. Collette Elliott’s case is an extreme one, she could have lost her life through neglect and physical violence, her story stands as a beacon of hope for other sufferers.

Synopsis

Unforgivable by Collette Elliott

Unforgivable is the shocking real-life story of suffering and survival from child abuse victim Collette Elliott. I brought you into this world and I can take you out with one click of my fingers. What if Baby P or Daniel Pelka had lived to tell their tale? Collette Elliott once had a similar story. She slipped through the net and only just survived. Her childhood was a place of filth and terror. Her prostitute mother abused and neglected Collette; leaving her with clients, starving her and beating her to a pulp. But the worst thing was that the people who were supposed to protect Collette turned a blind eye. This is the story of a little girl who waited years for justice. It's the story of a woman determined to protect other children from suffering her fate. Collette Elliott is a 35-year-old mother of four. She was born in Birmingham to Maureen Batchelor, a prostitute, and suffered years of physical and mental abuse. In April 2013, Birmingham City Council awarded her GBP20,000 in damages for the anguish she suffered and their failure to protect her. Collette is now happily married, a devoted mother to her girls, and is campaigning on behalf of other child abuse victims.
