Support for a Mother to retain care of children

Children – Public Law

28 November 2023

Corey represented the respondent Mother in care proceedings based on chronic neglect, and actual and threatened emotional and physical harm to three children.

The parents both have learning disabilities, and possibly undiagnosed cognitive disabilities. A Part 25 application was made for a PAMS (Parenting Assessment Manual Software) trained independent social work parenting assessment.

Since there had been no precipitating event necessitating removal of children, Corey successfully argued against the Local Authority at this point, removal of the children was refused, and the case listed for interim removal.
