Re: Social services involvement

Are you currently on a child protection plan or at the initial stages? Personally I would say stick together, Social/Children's services will try to 'divide and conquer'. Your stronger together then if your apart. Unless there is a clear and undeniable threat from your partner. Ask the social worker...

Re: Advice needed regarding home CCTV

The reasons for the CCTV are to capture epileptic seizure activity during the night. Step-sons cognitive functioning means he doesn't understand the CCTV nor its function, but rest assured, he knows its there. The recording (step-son in this instance) is an unfortunate by-product of the system we ar...

Re: Daily Visits by Social Workers

Update (and thank you Suzie for reply post) On last nights visit, we asked for clarification of an all agencies only strategy discussion on what was discussed.

Re: Is it possible to discharge a long-term care order

Hi Saraheve, Sorry to hear about the difficulties your having at the moment. I'm a parent and it is from that parent point of view that I will give my advice. NEVER give up hope.

Re: fathers chances of contact

Hi Worriedmum, I'm probably not qualified to provide advice, but just personal notes / observations as to what you've put :- (1) Regardless of past he is still biological father and as such has rights to see his children. (2) The allegations that took 2 years to clear you've said the CPS have said t...

Re: Another Section 47

A much belated reply. No, The family were on a CPP, she was known to CS, When she became 18, there was no transition from Child Services to Adult. As far as I'm concerned, her needs 'slipped through the net'. My bug bear is that we (my partner and I) needed to remove the eldest from the house to saf...
