Re: Need urgent advice

It's really stressful and at times you will feel out of control. Stay calm, stay safe and concentrate on what is best for your grandchild. Hopefully it will all work out in the end.

Re: Need urgent advice

They need to speak to people separately to ensure one partner is not being unduly pressured by the other, and both are roughly singing from the same songbook. Nothing unduly to fret about.

Re: Urgent advice - child protection conference

I would put it all in, but try to avoid either coming over as a victim, or over doing the comments on his behaviour. Cite a few examples but make it clear they are just a few. Keep it to the facts. Fair comment to draw comparisons between the old report and the fact it's just been rehashed. Just laz...

Re: Urgent advice - child protection conference

Hi At a loss and welcome. So sorry to hear of your experience with your 15 year-old, but believe me, you are far from alone. We too had a violent boy in the home and it sadly ended up with him leaving our care after he assaulted us both many times. The police had to be called on many occasion and he...

Re: Need urgent advice

Hi DB182. 'Suzie' is a member of staff at FRG and works more or less office hours so I'll answer your question as best I can as I know it's very worrying with the court due tomorrow. We've been in that position many times. It's excellent news that the guardian (who 'instructs the solicitor' on behal...

Re: Lost on what to do.

Hi nicebrit. Welcome to the forum. I really do understand your concerns. However I wonder if the local authority are simply parallel planning and looking at other options IF your SGO assessment turns out badly? It may be that an inexperienced worker has put it across badly? You ask about a child arr...

Re: MY RIGHTS

Hi Rural father. You need to repost your request on the parents forum at https://www.frg.org.uk/ParentsForum/ . This forum is for those concerned with or caring for children of family or friends. One thing before you go, PR stands for parental responsibility, not rights. The child has rights, includ...

Re: Police check help

I would not wait. First of all you formally write to the police querying the information provided. Copy in the chief constable and point out that the courts will be looking to move very quickly. I would ignore the social worker and apply in your own right to become party. Just speak to the court off...

Re: Special guardianship allowance

I am afraid that it's unlikely you will get anything backdated unless you raised it before or in court.

It's still worth a letter to the director of children's services formally requsting it though. Just don't hold your breath.
