With best wishes

Suzie

Re: Contact

Dear Jy2403 Welcome to the family and friends carers’ discussion forum and thank you for posting. I see from your post that there are difficulties arising regarding contact because the great aunt and uncle are not supporting contact which you say is set out in the court order. It is not clear from y...
