BECOME A VOLUNTEER FOR CHILDREN IN CARE AND THEY DON'T TELL YOU THAT YOU COULD HAVE YOUR OWN CHILDREN REMOVED
Leicestershire Social Services are asking for volunteers to come forward to befriend children in care, so i thought about at least getting some information about the subject.
I rang ,and a lady answered the telephone,and said she would send me an information pack, she also stated that a lot of people had come forward.
The forms arrived, so i started to read the documents in anticipation.
References would be required from your employer,also as we know they would have to obtain an enhanced CRB disclosure.
There would be an open evening where all interested individuals would get together.
There would be three interviews,and a health declaration form to be filled in by the applicants GP.
After an intensive training course an selection period, you would meet a child that you would befriend.supervised by Social Workers, with regular monthly meetings.and yearly appraisels.
You would get paid travel expenses,and other money which would pay for an afternoon at the pictures, or such.
The information leaflet states that a volunteer could be accused of child abuse,and that the Police would be involved,and in such circumstances, the Local Authority,and Social Services would not support the individual with regards to the allegation.
Applicants are not made aware in the documents, about what could happen with regards too their own family and children, if an allegation was made, as you all know it could result in the removal of a volunteers own children.
You give your heart and soul as a volunteer,and the LA do not make you aware of what could happen, i will be writing a letter with regards to this.
