Pre procèedings

Post by concernedgrandma » Tue Feb 05, 2019 5:30 pm

I really hope someone can give me some hope. Four of my grandchildren were put on the protection register April 2018. They were removed from the house and my son and his friends went through the house, painting cleaning and putting down new flooring. My son's girlfriend has mental problems and got him into a lot of debt. He left because of her mood swings. For a while he was allowed to see the children if she was having a good day. As he was no longer in the house things deteriorated again. She had also been drinking, she didn't wash and smelt like a tramp. The children gave been removed on a few occasions since due to threats of suicide, the state of the house and her getting arrested for assault.
To cut a long story short we are getting no information from child services. The first 26 weeks was up last sept/Oct but for some reason nothing happened. Then things have got worse and my son has not been allowed to see his children, another meeting took place in January which stated children were still at risk.
The girlfriend is in court for 2 counts of assault and 1 criminal damage in March and recently my son has been told that in the next 6 weeks the children will be put in care.
Last year my husband and I were asked if we would take on the SGO of course we said yes, but now they have said this is not being followed up because it's not fair to the ex girlfriend.
We are at our wits end my son has a solicitor in place with legal aid to persue getting the children but apparently she cannot do anything until she has had some sort of info from the social. Social keep saying they will send it over and then they don't.
We do not know where to turn or what to do next.
We have asked for an explanation of why they are not following up the SGO, all we can think is that it's because we live 200 miles away but we did agree to take them back for contact dates, but despite emails and phone calls we have no answers.
They don't reply to emails don't return your calls when voice messages are left.
Please can you give us some idea of what we need to do next to stop these children being put in the system.
