There is no case as yet. I just needed a simple answer, either yes or no.
Please cancel my question.
Thank you for replying. The child in question is an adopted child, who is badly damaged, emotionally and mentally from his early treatment and because of this is difficult to parent. Initially the adoptive parents were not told about the scale of abuse that the child hah had to endure. The professionals, who deal with him, have recommended that he goes to a boarding State school, where his needs will be well catered for. Although the Social services have been told how difficult it I s to parent him they are refusing to pay for the boarding fees.If they don't he may have to be returned to foster care, which would cost considerably more. The parents are thinking of taking legal action on behalf of their adopted son. Is he likely to be granted legal aid. He is 11 years old and about to enter Secondary education.
