Re: End of my tether!

Hi Hayley Welcome to the board. It sounds like in spite of your children being Children in Need under section 17 Children Act, I sense your frustration because it is clear that inspite of their complex needs , they are not being treated as as a priority at the moment. After several reassurances you ...

Re: Partner accused of talking online with a minor. Please h

Hi CTL03 Thanks for your update. I’m pleased to hear that the meeting with the police wasn’t as stressful as you’d feared. Unfortunately, it sounds as though Children’s Services are being very bad at communicating with you, which must be incredibly frustrating and is not good practice. Working Toget...

Re: Honestly cant see the light

Hi Warthog Thank you for the update. Sorry to hear about the news you will be attending court tomorrow because the Local Authority are applying for an Interim Care Order.

Re: Closed adoption for our grandson

Hi Driscjan Sorry I was unable to get back to you yesterday, as intended. For fear of breaching your grandson's human rights, and being mindful of who could be accessing these sites, I would suggest that putting photographs of him on social networking sites, under theses circumstances, may not be th...

Re: Honestly cant see the light

dear warthog, I am really sorry that you are have to wait so long for the social workers statement. It can be so stressful not knowing why she is so late in filing it with the court. You could ask your solicitor to contact the local authotiy legal department on your behalf. It may just something sim...

Best Wishes

Re: Closed adoption for our grandson

Dear Driscjan, I am really sorry that your family continues to experience such difficulties with the practice of the local authority. I can see how upsetting and distressing it must be to see that the care plan that was approved by the court was ignored and the consequences this has had for your gra...
