private fostering help needed please

Postby helplessannie32 » Thu Jan 22, 2015 11:15 pm

Hi this is my first post so sorry if i get it wrong. Social services has decided that my daughter should be in a private foster arrangement, as were not getting on at the moment as she's 15. They say she asked for it herself but i know she wouldnt of known how too. They have also said that her address has to to premantly and officially changed to private fosterers address, how can this be true and legal? Aswell as that theyve said everthing has to changed over to the carers name and they dont care if that means i have to lose money,pay extra bedroom tax or have to move as a result of it. How can this be right or even any good or help for the child and parent to get back to being a proper family again? Please help me as im at breaking point! Thanks helplessannie32

Hi, Helps annie32 sorry you are on the wrong forum you need to be on the parents one. This forum is for the carers of the children. I cannot offer you any advice but offer you every good wish and hope this gets sorted out for both you and your daughter.

Not being brilliant at IT stuff if you google family rights group then click on discussion groups you will see a blue "Bubble" Parents discussion group.
