Hello, my name is ***** ***** I’ll do my best to assist you today.

Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.

Can you tell me more, and is there any action currently being taken by social services?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
We don't know, we can only assume they are investigating. This is a friend who has been accused anonymously of abusing a child of their friend of over 15 years. All we know is the friend his wife and the child have had to remove him from Facebook and are not allowed to contact him to safeguarding the child.
Today he was pulled into a meeting at work to review if he can continue to work due to safeguarding of staff and customer and him self after they where contacted by social services
They were asking him questions which he would no know the answers to as he is not aware of any information regarding the allogation

I understand. He would be advised to speak to an employment law solicitor in that case as it's an employment issue, rather than a social services or criminal one at this stage.
