Special Guardianship, Kinship & Permanence

Our Special Guardianship, Kinship & Permanence Team:

  • assess Regulation 24 foster carers (connected persons) and
  • provide special guardianship assessments to the court

After a Special Guardianship Order (SGO) has been granted by the court, we have a post SG service where we can give you extra support.

The support we offer includes but is not limited to:

  • advice and counselling
  • help dealing with other organisations such as schools and healthcare
  • accessing therapeutic services
  • training and support groups

If the child was in the care of a different local authority immediately before the SGO was granted, you should contact them.
