Foster carer making unauthorised decisions

Can a foster carer agree to have a child put on the pill without the social worker consulting with the parent first? The IRO stated that no decision should be made without the sw contacting me but instead the carer went ahead. I didn't find out for six months as the review minutes stated that my dau...

Re: Covid-19/Any Indirect Contact Being Arranged?

Hi everyone. Quick update. My daughter has been asked how she felt about a voice call with her brother. She didn't want to talk anyone on the phone so I know that won't be an option when my next cintact is due in two months. As there is no other option available the social worker has suggested my so...

Covid-19/Any Indirect Contact Being Arranged?

My daughter has complex learning needs and wouldn't manage a voice call. That is all that is being offered which means me, dad and her brother have no contact at all despite their legal duty to arrange an alternative during the lockdown. Anyone else not able to have indirect contact with their child...

Re: Ambushed at LAC Review

I have received an email from the social worker. She doesn't know what I am referring to when I requested the contact assessment. Meaning there wasn't an assessment carried out so I've emailed back asking for the reasons in writing why my daughter's contact has been cut by half. I wait her response....

Not consulted about my daughter's care decisions

Hi everyone. My daughter has a learning diability and is vulnerable. There has been discussions previously around possibly giving her something to supress her periods. Nothing happened for several LAC reviews it being noted that the carer was helping my daughter manage them. I then read in the new s...

Re: Ambushed at LAC Review

I finally found the courage to ask for a copy of my daughter's contact needs assessment. Guess what it's been over two weeks. I gave them 5 working days! The social worker (number 4) left just before Christmas so I sent an email to the IRO. He chased them for me last week and said they had promised ...

Re: Ambushed at LAC Review

Hi Suzie thank you for your very detailed reply. Over many reviews/PEP meetings during the past 2.5 years with this carer I have been subjected to accusations. These have been directed at me solely as causing my daughter distress. The ongoing issue revolves around my daughter reacting badly to seein...

Ambushed at LAC Review

My DD has special needs and although nearly 12 is developmentally more 6/7. She's under a full care order and been with her 'permanent' foster carer for 2.5 years. All seemed to be going well despite the carer being a single person and having another disabled child in the household. I believed the l...
