Social Services

SOCIAL SERVICES

Every Local Authority has a legal duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children within their area.

Social Services become involved with your children if they are concerned about their welfare

Sometimes you may disagree with what Social Services are doing and we can help you with that. We cover Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster and throughout South Yorkshire.

As solicitors dealing with social service cases, we can advise you regarding Social Services responsibilities and the role of the Social Worker so you will be able to take advantage of the services that Social Services may offer your family.

You may be entitled to Legal Aid which means we can help you for free.

ISSUES OF CONCERN/PLO MEETING WITH SOCIAL SERVICES

Sometimes Social Services ask you to come to a case conference or meeting and ask that you bring a solicitor to this meeting with you. This meeting is called either an Issues of Concern Meeting or a PLO meeting.

You will receive a letter from Social Services asking you to come to this meeting with your own solicitor. We can come to these legal meetings with social services and advise you throughout this process

If you are a parent or have parental responsibility for the children then you will get legal aid and so it will not cost you anything for us to help you.

CARE PROCEEDINGS

If Social Services have started Court proceedings in relation to your children, then our solicitors dealing with social services cases, can give you help and advice throughout this process and we can also represent you at Court in Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster and throughout South Yorkshire.

If you are a parent or have parental responsibility for the children then you will be automatically eligible for Legal Aid so it won’t cost you anything for us to represent you.
