Re: Radio Interviews

The interview on radio Kent is at approx 1hr 10 mins into the program.

Interviews on Radio 5 live are dotted throughout the first half of the program.

Not sure about the rest I wasnt making a note of where they appeared in all the excitement.

Radio Interviews

<r>There have been several radio interviews that have taken place with kinship carers today, many carers you will all know. Both David and Cathy did a fantastic job organising interviews at what I imagine was very short notice.<br/> <br/> Here are the links to the radio programs that did pieces.<br/...

Re: Grants for University for those on SGO


Dont know about grants, but children who were previously LAC should be entitled to leaving care services, this includes financial help for them to go to University.

Would depend on the legal status of the children prior to the SGO being granted though.

Re: This is what the Americians think of LAC

<t><br/> That is truly shocking. It seems the plan from this senator would be to reduce children who are in care through no fault of their own to the status of second class citizens. Will he next be making them queue up at night shelters and soup kitchens?<br/> <br/> Many children do have hand-me-do...

Re: stage 2 complaint


Has it been 20 working days?

You dont have to send any additional info, if they havnt responded within the allowed time just send in a letter telling them that because of lack of response within the allocated time you want your complaint escalated immediately to stage 2.
