The youngest are five year old and three and a half year old boys
My daughter was in hospital for a few days last month her father was told today at contact today. Why didnt the social worker just give me or her father a courtesy call just to inform us. He was told today by my daughters foster carer the female carer. Soon care order is made dont we have any rights anymore how the chidren are doing who any illness they had dont we as parents have rights anymore. Have we fully lost our parental rights?
Hi Claire, The children's father may have to do the formal complaint because I was not at the contact. When I see my daughter on thursday I will have to see if they raise any issues. I will not give up. The complaint response from the manager was ok. I dont have to liase with the childrens's social worker anymore. The children will be allocated a new social worker and case will be refered to looked after team.
Hi Claire, Thank you for giving the site details. I am waiting for the case to be tranfered to the looked after team new social worker I hope he/she will be more approachable I am not hopeful the socail worker maybe worser than the old one. Cant trust social workers anymore.
But I have no choice is to work with them if they are willing to work with me.
I have requested to the customer care team of the complaint department walsall council a mediation meeting between myself, my support worker, children services managers and the customer care team officer. So we could work constructivlely for the ell being of the children. What do you think is that a good idea I suggested it to them?
Hi Claire, The contact has now reduced for the contact was arranged this friday 4th October now it on the 6/12/2013 because the court decided quarterly contact.
Can I complain about this it was just matter of three weeks they changed the contact arrangement.
