Re: Police Investigation and Child Services Hell

We are currently in Chikd Protection proceedings - we had an initial conference and recently had the follow-up conference after 3 months. Both were farcical and the decision was taken to remain on CP for a further 6months. After the core fam group meeting yesterday (where only myself, the mother and...

Re: I am a sex offender father please help me

Thank you, merely hearing your support means more than you realise... I wrote them a long letter citing quotations from Human Rights law and their own guidance around this needing to be necessary, timely, proportionate, etc... they’re still pushing. I have a specialist ‘independent’ (hah yeh right) ...

Re: I am a sex offender father please help me

Yes, and the plan arrived in the post today. They’re trying to push forward on carrying out police checks (form 87B) on my father and his wife as significant adults, which would involve disclosure. We’ve been in this situation now (involved with social services) for 3yrs and we’ve managed to avoid a...

Re: Police Investigation and Child Services Hell

I have written so many detailed letters to them, picking out faults in what they say and do; they’re misleading in their phrases, ambiguous, censor anything that strengthens our case, exaggerate anything that weakens it, and are factually incorrect on so many levels. They take what we say, do, write...

Re: I am a sex offender father please help me

We had the 2nd CP conf yesterday and -as expected- it all played out as though they’d decided in advance. The so-called Indelendent chair and the social worker (colleagues of course) had carefully planned their attack. They shut me down every time I tried to reason, talked over me, pushed me on issu...

Re: I am a sex offender father please help me

Reading as many posts in this thread as I could (time permitting) has been fascinating, upsetting and reassuring all at once. So many of us going through the same thing. Many seem to suggest we don't fight social services, that we do everything they say so that they leave us alone. The point is, it'...

Re: Police unfairly influence SS

Hi there, We are really desperate for a response to this. The history you can read above. We have our CP Conference tomorrow and since the time of the Initial Conference where the plan was agreed (3 months ago) we have complied with absolutely everything - as we always had in the 2/3 years leading u...

Re: children services

Whilst you would absolutely expect the involvement of CS (to assess risk and put in any measures to safeguard children), just be prepared that they may change their mind over who can supervise his visits. In our case, CS have changed their minds - the fact that the mother refused to say anything dam...

Re: Police unfairly influence SS

Hi again, I've been reading up about Human Rights, Disclosure regs etc. Whilst it appears that there are some limits on what social services can request or do in terms of disclosure, it would seem (as ever) that as long as they can claim that they are sufficiently worried about the child's safeguard...
