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...

So, things have degraded further with the LA to the point now were currently on and ICO. The children are in varying forms of LA foster care and or residential placements which means technically they are now 'in care'.

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...

Re: Entitlement to benefits

Hi InnocentMammy, Googling child benefit and Local Authority care, I came across the following link. 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...

Re: Feeling intimitated

I'm a parent who is currently on a child protection plan,.. this families second I might add. I am very much aware of good and bad practice. I genuinely feel the attitude and conduct of the children's social workers was wrong, and borderline criminal. I'm pleased you've since had a conversation with...

Re: Feeling intimitated

Hi Firstly, let me say I'm sorry to hear your having such a bad time with Children's Services. I can completely sympathise with your situation. Having read your story it is not clear what stage you are at with Children's Services. Are you currently on a child protection plan?, if not have they arran...

Re: Deprivation of Liberty

UPDATE So, I got my Stage 1 reply back,... Having gone through this procedure before my assumption was correct. The Manager who investigated her employee, the Safeguarding Social Worker, basically sided with the social worker in that she 'did not tell me what to do' but would use words like 'advise'...
