Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first.
For clarity this was in a report which has been prepared for possible Care Proceedings stating what the child has said - is that correct?
Are you aware that the site charges more for a phone call?
I am sorry but there is no action that you or your wife can take regarding this - put simply this is not a matter in which she has any rights at all
This is a report which is prepared for a specific purpose - potential Care Proceedings.
In it what the child has said is reported since it is a sign that there is something seriously wrong at home - either it happened (which is bad) or it in invented - which is a disturbing thing for a child of that age to do - so it is clear evidence of the need for intervention.
The allegation was not "put into the public domain" it is part of a confidential Social Work report prepared in potential Care Proceedings and as such should not hav ebeen shared with anyone else by the mother or anyone else involved in the assessment
This is why Social Services would not discuss it with you
I am sorry to have to have been so blunt. Do please ask if you need further details
You are most welcome
