At the moment all the SS are saying is that my niece is in immediate danger and I need to tell them today if I will take her in. They say she will be removed from her mother at the end of the week. I'm not sure, but I believe they are trying to get my nieces mother to voluntarily give her up.
The sleeping arrangements are my mother shares with my 5 yr old nephew (she is his carer). I share with my youngest 4yrs old. My 11yr old daughter has her own room as does my 10yr old son.
I'm not sure how this works. Are you waiting for more money? If so how much. I don't have much money, and have only received follow up questions so far. I am desperate though, so please let me know how much more I need to pay to get some advice.
Thanks for this.
For the longer term do you know if there would be an option to make my home more suitable for the number of people I'll potentially end up having to home, e.g. would social services be able to fund converting the attic space into a bedroom? The reason is I just don't have the space at the moment.
