Re: will it happen again?

That's no problem at all Ange. You're right, the law can be confusing and after all, that is what we are here for - to help everyone understand it better!

Thanks again for offering your support to other users.

Re: How to help

It sounds like you are getting different advice from different workers which is very confusing! I would get either worker or better -their manager to confirm the position with you. (You could also ask for it in writing) You are entitled to know whether this referral has taken place. (only in certain...

Re: How to help

Hi Dmtam, This is a lot for you to cope with and, as my colleague said in the last post, you should also try to get help for yourself. Although it is easy to feel that you’ve let everyone down, you didn’t know that the abuse was going on and it is easy for perpetrators to manipulate these situations...

Re: Can you trust Childrens Services

Hi Dmtam,

I'm sorry you feel like this. Just wanted to let you know that I have answered this in your other thread rather than repeat posting here.

Re: appeal

Hi Ange, Have you got the barristers advice in writing? If not can you get it in writing? Then could you show it to the CAB? Could they then refer you? Can the cab find any other organisation that may be able to help? Unfortunately, FRG are not in a position to take on cases to pursue through courts...

Re: How to help

Dear Dmtam, I can see that things are very difficult for you at the moment. However, you were not aware that your husband had physically abused your son and that is not your fault. Often a perpetrator can also be very manipulating and your ex may have done this in your sons case-to make him keep qui...

Re: Need advice fast PLEASE

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,...

Re: How to help

Dear Dmtam , I am sorry that you have had such a difficult time due to your husband’s behaviour. You are lucky that you have been strong enough to move on and are in a better position now to deal with the information about the physical abuse that your son has disclosed. However, you may still yourse...
