Re: Estranged Dad and Social Services

As a father who has lost his children to the care system (for which I am still currently fighting for justice over what happened, and how), I understand and sympathise. My advice is do not give up, these are your children, fight for them and when the time is right and they understand, at least you c...

Placement Revoked, What next

Hi Suzie (and anyone else reading who shares a comment), Well, I'm back. It's been a while since my last post, and what a hell of a roller coaster these last few years have been. Today marks day 834 since the Interim Care order was granted. Not that I've been counting,.. much, only every day. The 30...

Re: SPAM

Hi Charmed, I've also noticed this on occasion, but thankfully these are not significant events. The FRG team are usually pretty good at removing unwanted posts. All the posts have only been posted today despite joining a few days ago. I'm sure when they log in, considering this active post noting t...

Re: Have you been asked to agree to your child coming into care under a voluntary arrangement?

Yes Although in my case, the Local Authority have concerns and recently escalated matters to a PLO with a view to going straight to court (no opportunity to try and work with LA on the issues as the CPP process stagnated). Court date sorted, then a week before one of my children was reported to have...

Re: Feeling intimitated

J64, My condolences on your loss. I know you've tried to phone your social worker. You could try emailing. I honestly don't know if this would work but possibly give it a try. I would imagine it would be pretty much standard practice across the industry but my social workers email would be :- <first...

Child Benefit Local Authority Care CH193 form This form is for Local Authority or Care Trusts only so not appropriate in your case, but this might answer your question.

Re: Was this ever Child Protection?

Hi Har1Her1, Potentially (as its not happened yet and no-one knows what's going to happen on the day) great news about coming off CPP. Typically, from what I've heard happens is rather that total abandonment, things should drop down to a child in need meeting and periodically you will attend meeting...
