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.

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...
