Re: Child Trust Fund Managed By 'Official Solicitor' Back to Parent

Thank you Suzie for your help. My son was under a supervision order until earlier this year which expired and the case closed by children's services shortly after. I hope they can help me.

Child Trust Fund Managed By 'Official Solicitor' Back to Parent

Hi all. My children went into foster care and I received a letter from my children's CTF provider that their accounts were now managed by the 'Official Solicitor' because there wasn't an appropriate person with parental responsibility available. Now my son is home with me full time, no court order. ...

Re: What are my rights regarding requesting information about my children?

Hi Cheshire2003. In my case despite supplying loads of pictures back in 2014 to the then social worker and following the recent LAC review in January this year when the IRO is still chasing. I doubt any Life Story has ever been complied for my children at all! The IRO keeps asking about it and the c...

Parental PR and EHCP Involvement

There appears to be some confusion as to whether I should receive a copy of my child's draft ECHP plan and whether I can put forward my preference for secondary education provision for her. I am invited to the review but this was flagged up by the SEN department at the LA. Just wondered as I 'share'...

Re: who do I complain to next?

Thank you Ignatious I don't know the social worker's surname unfortunately. I get the distinct impression that she wants to keep 'family' at arms length. I now know Christmas contacts will be changing as mine falls on Christmas Eve and sibling contact is on New Years Eve so they won't happen on thos...

This forum has been hacked by SPAM 'SusanLug' Montenegro about money transfers!

Re: who do I complain to next?

worriedmum81 I know it doesn't help to know you're not alone but I'm going through a very similar situation with my daughter's new social worker. She won't even give me her email address! She has a very strong accent so hearing her on the phone on the two occasions I've actually got to speak to her ...

Re: So confused

Hi heartbroken80. It's not up to the social worker it's up to the judge. These social workers' go way above there position and think they call the shots. They don't. It's up to you to put the best possible case before the Judge and it's the Judge and only the Judge that decides using the 'welfare ch...

Re: Local Authority Jurisdiction While Child in Long Term Care

Hi Suzie, yes my daughter has complex additional needs and she is under a full care order. She has global development delay and is in a very supportive school for kids with varying disabilities. The new social worker doesn't appear to have had the proper handover as she has no clue about my daughter...

Local Authority Jurisdiction While Child in Long Term Care

I live in X county with my son while my daughter lives with a foster family and goes to school in the neighbouring Y county. Her social worker is from my local authority and it's making things so difficult for her school, me, the foster carer, everyone as they can't deal direct with the local author...
