Re: My views are being ignored

Dear Saraheve Thanks for your further post and sorry that it was not answered sooner due to volume of work. I am sorry that you were not invited to the review meeting which I assume was in respect of your son who is currently in care. Did the social worker give you any reason for not inviting you? A...

Re: Domestic abuse and social services taking it too serious

Hi, Thanks for posting back. I am not able to answer your questions. But by the end of the assessment-in a few months time- the social worker should be able to.

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.
