Helping a mother with learning difficulties retain care of her child

Kevin represented a mother who had learning difficulties. There were wide ranging allegations of neglect in relation to her child.

During the course of the proceedings, Kevin encouraged the mother to work with the social workers and to engage with support groups. The mother made improvements and the child was returned to the mother’s care.

This case highlights Kevin’s ability to:

  • work with vulnerable clients and support them through the proceedings
  • enable clients with learning difficulties to engage with the legal process
  • work collaboratively with clients and local authorities to identify long-term solutions in the best interests of the children involved.
