Re: Changing the forum: a suggestions box

I have never liked last year's changes to the forum. I'm sorry to say because I know a lot of thought and work went into them, but if it were possible to return to how it was before I would think it worth a try. I don't think it's a case of how many and what folders. We lost so many people when the ...

Re: Advice

Hi Charlie I can't add to the advice already given other than to suggest you keep a log of anything relevant during this time of waiting to see how things pan out. Record all contact with your daughter and baby - phone calls, visits, etc, with dates, circumstances, how it went, etc; any concerns you...

Re: SGO Granted after 11 hearings - 3 years!

Congratulations on getting the SGO at long last! :D You will get very helpful advice here from others who have had to fight their way to get financial recognition at long last - wishing you all the very best with this.

Films about Child Protection Conferences

I received the links via email as I expect other members have too. Just want to say I think they're excellent - we would have found them so helpful when we were at the Initial CP Conference state. Thanks FRG :)

Re: Family and Friends Carers Discussion Board survey

I looked at the survey but none of it applies to me today as there's nothing new on the board.

I think it would be helpful to have a general survey of how we are all finding the new style board as well as this one about how useful we find the advice given on it :)

Re: Advice needed for writing to ss

I can only imagine the hell of not only losing a grandchild but then having to face losing the two remaining, and only to be able to see them at a contact centre for such a short time. You are having to deal with so many emotions and pressures, and at the same time you need to keep a clear head as y...

Re: Advice needed for writing to ss

Hi NannyLoz, I'm so sorry for the loss of your baby granddaughter. What a traumatic few months you've had. I can't add to Robin's excellent response, just want to second his welcome to the forum and to emphasise the importance of documenting everything as he advises. Wishing you strength as you figh...

Re: Where do I stand?

Hi, echoing Robin's welcome, you will find you are among friends here :) I'm so sorry you've been through such hell and it's disgraceful that the support for your niece and yourselves was not provided long ago, but sadly many of us here will be unsurprised. I agree with Robin that it sounds as if th...
