Re: How can i cope through this.

Hi I have had my contact reduced from weekly to fortnightly as I'm destabilising their placement with their father. My feeling this is destabilising anyway. I'm not happy with the decision, I'm not sure how the girls are feeling with this. I would be interested how to work towards unsupervised conta...

Re: Contact

I have asked for the reports in preparation for the Lac review, I was told I could have them but it's not normally something that the local authority do. My daughter has been invited to the Lac review, she doesn't want to come. The social worker has suggested to her that she writes a letter to the I...

Re: Contact

To Suzie The Lac review is 6th October, I'm scared of going to this and I'm not enjoying contact at the moment. My girls are struggling living with the father and it's spilling over into contact. My oldest is still telling the social worker that she wants to be with me. My youngest was excluded from...

Contact

I'm not prepared to reduce my contact as I don't feel this in the best interests of the girls and it's in the girl's care plans. In this review,I was told...

What reasons are they giving for not returning him,wh...
