Grandparents and Care Proceedings
When local authorities start Care Proceedings, Grandparents may be left to pick up the pieces and take on the care of the grandchildren at the request of Social Services.
Or Care Proceedings might have started and the grandparents want to put themselves forward as carers for the children. In July 2009 Grandparents Plus reported that placement with grandparents was the preferred choice of 65% of parents in the event that they were unable to care for their children.
In these situations, it is vital to have good advice and representation. The Grandparents Legal Centre has three highly experienced Solicitors who are members of the Children Panel.
