Re: Shocking revelations

Hi Amicipat, A word of caution regarding the LA complaints procedure. Be as specific as you can and detail everything you wish to complain about at stage 1. If it gets escalated beyond that, any new information you come into contact with can not be added to the complaints as the LA have to have an o...

Re: Me and my Childrens Services experience(s)

Thank you for the reply HerHar, We were previously on a CPP and came off in 2013. Since then we would argue that the level of support we have received has diminished. Unfortunately for us, we are now back on another CPP. (Time to get the support we've missed out on over the last 3 years) On a separa...

Re: Son Arrested

I probably shouldn't discuss the specifics, but here's some bullet points. An elder sibling assaulted one of the other children in the house. We ended up on a S47 due to this incident, but through course of the S47 procedure, it ended going to ICPC. Subsequently we are now on a full CPP under catego...

Re: Can my 16 year old refuse to participate in Child in Need plan?

I'm not totally against Social Services or by which name they go by, currently Children's Services, They have there uses, and bottom line, they are there to do a job. What I don't like about them is when they get it wrong, there does not seem much the people on the wrong end of CS can do. Moving on ...

Re: Can my 16 year old refuse to participate in Child in Need plan?

Hi again Boobop16, Glad to see my post helped you post yours. Quick question regarding your situation. (but I'm Sure Suzie will get round to posting a reply). You said you had a S47. Can I ask what the outcome was? Were things escalated to a child protection plan. (I only ask as I've been on a S47 w...

Re: Dad still abusing but nobody will investigate

Dear F-m-s-a Sorry to hear about your situation and the fact it is still ongoing. I've caught up and read your previous posts. Your subject message reads 'nobody will investigate'. From my experience, by far the perfect person to investigate is ourselves. (More on this in a little while). The burden...

This issue has resulted in an Initial Child Protection meeting scheduled for next week. Amongst the invitees is a Senior Probation Officer. Does anyone know what the role of the Probat...

Re: three days left to decide

Hi HistoryGirl81, Firstly I'll start off with my personal opinion. If you want this baby, as you've clearly stated, don't go through with the termination. I myself have not experienced it, but my partner has and it is not a pleasant experience. You stated you don't want to lose baby at the hands of ...

Re: Advice please

Never a good thing to read about situations like this. Fortunately the children are in a significantly safer situation than they were in. From the limited information that is available in what you've said it still seems pretty much clear what's likely to happen. Children's Services will not let the ...
