Re: Reinvolvement by cs

Hi TKH, I’m sorry to hear of this distressing situation. I assume your daughter is still a child i.e. under 18? Did the last proceedings conclude without any orders etc being made? There is no need for you to contact Children’s Services, the new name for social services. However, if they do contact ...

Re: Close-out procedures

Hi,

Just to remind you that you could call our advice line to discuss the terms if you'd like to. You're right though, it would be unwise to post them here if they make you easily identifiable.

Re: Can you trust Childrens Services

Dear liseyr35, I am sorry that you have had such a distressing time and have to move out of your home. Have you got a solicitor acting for you at the moment? I would always get a solicitor to check any agreement that has been prepared by children’s services before signing it. Our advice sheet on car...

Re: Runaway 11 year old

Dear pal1975, I am sorry to hear about the response that you got from children’s services when you requested help from them. I assume when they say you need to pursue “legal avenues” to get your son returned means they think you need to go to court. This is certainly an option, although by rights yo...

However, should you continue to have concerns about her welfare, you could make a referral to Children’s Services (new name for Social Services). You can make your refer...

Re: Mother of child on drugs

Hi Coco, Thanks for posting on our board. First of all, as TKH says, you making a referral will not automatically lead to the children being removed. If Children’s Services has sufficient concern about the referral you make they will investigate and decide what action needs to be taken from there. T...
