Our Children’s team specialise in providing tailored legal advice to families in need of support concerning all aspects of Social Services involvement with a family.
Social Services can become involved with a family when there are concerns about a carer’s ability to meet the needs of a child or children in their care.
Social Services have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children in their area who are in need and can provide a range of services that are appropriate to that child’s needs.
Children can be placed on Child in Need plans or Child Protection Plans depending on the level of concerns that Social Services have.
In certain circumstances Social Services may ask to sign an agreement that your child can be placed in temporary foster care called a S20 agreement. It is important that before signing such an agreement that you first obtain legal advice about the implications of this.
If you have questions about Social Services involvement with your children then our team may be able to help. We pride ourselves on responding to your individual needs and are willing to work in a way that suits you. We can provide Legal Aid when available and competitive fixed fees so you can obtain initial advice about your rights.
If you need further advice or assistance call your nearest office or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
