Re: Sgo order... Can I give birth mother back her child.

You would have to go through the legal process .Hello the birth Mother applies to the court to have the SGO discharged then her abilities will be assessed. Her change of lifestyle and priorities will support her. As you are obviously in agreement the process should be quite smooth.

Re: Taking on Niece/Nephews

Hello possibly they would want to keep all the children together. Though they may consider the younger ones coming to you. You may be expected to give up work some carers have had to. Depends on the needs. If you foster then you would receive an allowance it is highly likely you would be persuaded o...

Re: Breech of Confidentiality

The purpose of the meeting was to discuss and share the results of the investigation and that is what they did. It is a matter of public record and open to anyone that needs a reason to know and can apply for a subject information request. So no they have not breached confidentiality. After all they...
