Re: Domestic abuse and social services taking it too serious

Dear Rodxg8, Welcome to the Parents Forum. I am sorry to hear of that you are experiencing domestic abuse and that your partner has threatened to harm your child.

Re: Need some help

Dear Unknown1, Welcome to the Parents Forum. I am sorry that there are difficulties between you and your son at the moment. I can see that your son is angry with you because he does not see that you are trying to protect him and instead thinks you are interfering with his life unnecessarily. It can ...

Re: Looked After Child Review

Dear M***S, Welcome to the Parents board. Are you a mum of a child or children who are in care (either by court order or your agreement)?

Dear Heartbroken80,

Thank you for letting us know the outcome of the directions appointment. It is really good news that children's services are considering a plan for your son to return home and they are recognizing the progress that you have made.

Re: Can a Social Worker override a SOPO?

Dear Good mum, Welcome to the Parents forum. I can see that children services have carried out an assessment and concluded that your partner cannot have any contact with your children who are 16 and 14 because he might sexually abuse them. However, this appears to be contrary to the recommendation o...

Re: Special guardianship

Dear Tomk19 Thank you for your post. I would ask you to refer to our advice sheet entitled Special guardianship: what does it mean for birth parents? I think it answers your questions. However, you have said that when the SGO was made, contact with the children was left to the discretion of the spec...

Re: Partner of sex offender

Dear Taylorswift Thank you for your post. From what I read you have taken all of the safeguarding steps to protect your children from ‘harm’ and you are working well and cooperating with the social workers.

Re: Supervision

Dear JG1204 Thank you for your post and welcome to the board. Children’s Services do have certain ‘powers’ relating to contact when children are under care orders but can only refuse contact if a court says so. Social workers should allow ‘reasonable access’ to children who are under care orders, ou...
