Hi Juliejac66,

I am glad that you are starting to see the other side of the assessment and that children’s services have assessed you and your family as not being a risk to your grand daughter. Hopefully, soon you can have contact again with her. Remind the social worker next week, when you see her, that you would like to see your grand daughter again. She can raise this with your daughter in law and may be she will discuss the importance of the support that the extended family can give her. Your daughter in law will be finding it very difficult with hearing about what your son has done and not having the practical support of your son at home.

I can see that the social worker has been in a bit of a panic herself-given the amount of information that she has been writing down incorrectly. Luckily she has had you to correct her and remind her of the information she was suppose to be give to your daughter.
Ask the social worker when she expects to give you a copy of core assessment. You will want to make sure that you have an opportunity to go through and correct any factual errors and that your opinion is included in the assessment document. This will be used by the team manger of the social worker to make any decisions about support or child protection.

Please post back.
Best wishes,
