Good morning, welcome to just answer and thank you for your patience. I am reviewing your question now for you.
The social worker is appointed to protect the child’s best interests and the only people they cannot stop from having contact and access to the child where no safeguarding or any other issues have been raised in them are those with parental responsibility for the child. Unless your mum has applied for and secured the order, as Nan she has no automatic right to have access or contact with your daughter. So the short answer is the social worker could decide to stop her if she didn’t think it was in the best interests of your daughter for Nan to be unsupervised.
I hope this helps and any follow up please do not hesitate to send your message. I should be logging off shortly but don’t worry if you respond whilst I am offline I will wake up to the notifications and I will respond. You may get a call offer too which may be useful if you feel it may be better to discuss on the phone during the day as opposed to the typing back and forth. Call offer only accept if you want to speak to me otherwise just leave it and offer lapses with time. All the best.
Hi I am very sorry to hear of the situation but you should ask for the confirmation and reasons in writing to be sent to you. They will not send to your mom because she doesn’t have parental responsibility for your daughter.
