Panel often only sit at certain times. G ood the guardian in getting involved their view carries a lot of sway with panel and court. They speak for the child.

Me and my wife went to a fostering panel and thought we did very well, only to find out that we were voted down by something like 15-0, we could not believe it, stunned. However, we did appeal and had to go to another panel in London, we got asked the same sort of questions and won the case to be foster parents by a 15-0 vote, there were also many criticisms of the local authority but just shows you to never give up.

Dear swampydrill

Thank you very much for your post. I would just like to agree with ied53’s “well done” and thank you for letting other relatives know that there can be successful outcomes to fostering panel appeals.

Best wishes

Suzie
