Re: What is cin code.

Hello Basil It’s a bit difficult to answer fully without seeing the paperwork you’re talking about. From what you have said, it sounds as though your child has been assessed as a “child in need” (CiN) as a result of the impact of a parent’s illness/ disability. Following this assessment, the social ...

Re: Protection plans

Hello Claireds Welcome to the parents’ discussion board and thank you for posting.

Re: Honestly cant see the light

Hi, I just want to clarify a couple of points that have come up in the discussion. Care proceedings and section 20 . During the court proceedings for a care order, the local authority can apply for an interim care order, which would then give the local authority parental responsibility which they sh...

Re: Grandparents' contact and SS

Hi separated father Do you know the outcome of the section 47 investigation being conducted by Children’s Services, as this is key to any care planning, and contact that is being planned? From what you say in your post, the police are unlikely to re-open their investigation unless there is any new e...

Re: Problems with social worker and child in voluantary care

Hello Basil I am going to answer your other thread in more detail. In brief though, a child is accommodated under section 20 with their parents’ consent. The parent has every right to remove this consent at any time and ask for the child to be returned to their care. If children’s services believe t...

Re: Closed adoption for our grandson

Hi Driscjan My name is Suzie, an advisor from the Family Rights Group. Sorry you appear to have had such a difficult time. You are clearly disappointed about the outcome of the care proceedings. From the sounds of it, the Final Hearing was contested, as it was clear the parties had failed to reach a...
