Support for you
We hasve a duty to make sure the child is safe and ensure that you get the support and advice you need. Initially you will need to have statutory checks which are carried out to make sure the needs of the child will be met.
We will also arrange regular visits to see how the child has settled in with you and provide you with support, practical information and advice, as well as details about benefits that may be available to you.
