Dear Gwent Regional Partnership Board,
When a child is removed from parents and placed with a family member under a section 20, how long does that child need to be living with their carer before they can apply for a Special Guardian Order.
And Is there a minimum time that the child would have had to live with that person full time before the courts will accept the application.
What support would children services offer the parents to help the children return home before they started considering the carers
Home to be a safer and more permanent place for the children to grow up.
Unfortunately I do not have the information but if you contact the individual local authorities they should be able to provide the information.
Many thanks/ Diolch yn fawr.
