Thanks for your patience and enquiry. I am sorry to hear what is happening. Firstly with respect to your son, you are not legally required to allow him access and could simply change your locks so that he no longer has access.
With a special guardianship order you would share parental responsibility with biological parents until the child attains the age of 18 years. You will however be able to make day to day decisions in relation to your grandchild’s day life without requiring parental consent.
The Guardian's Allowance rate is £18.55 a week. You get it on top of Child Benefit
Fostering is very similar to the SGO, in that, you would be responsible for the child until the child attains the age of 18 years.
You become the child’s main carer and can make day to day decisions, however you will not get Parental Responsibility. Those with Parental Responsibility, such as the parent, retain their Parental Responsibility and would continue to exercise it. This means your son would still have a major say in the decision making process involving the child.
Please see below link with the financial remuneration you would receive as a foster parent
