Re: Replace a social worker

Dear Melly17165 Thanks for your further post. I can see that there is some confusion about what is meant by what the consultant said when your granddaughter had a child protection medical. My understanding is that what was meant is that there is a lack of certainty about the cause of the bruising to...

Re: Taking on Niece/Nephews

Dear Willsy, I can see that there is a court date at the end of September. I think it would be really helpful for you to go to the court hearing. Although, only those who are a party (Mum, dad, the children’s guardian and the local authority-along with their legal representation) will be allowed int...

Re: Legal issue

Dear ied53 Welcome back to the Family and Friends Carers discussion board. The question that you have asked is, am sure, as you have said in your post of concern to special guardians who might be worried about a child not being returned after contact. There is a process that would allow a special gu...
