Have you seen our second guide for social workers on parenthood and parental responsibility. The guide covers the status of the legal parent, the difference between this and legal parental responsibility and how the two are acquired.
More complex matters are covered concerning parenthood and the legal status of the adults involved when surrogacy and artificial insemination are involved.
Social work guides are written in support of MAAPP, the Multi-Agency Application supporting the Social Work profession.
Our first guide in support of social workers was on section 7 reporting in private family law proceedings, and includes draft templates. This guide has received very positive feedback and can be downloaded via the link below:
Social work guides are provided in a pdf format, meaning they can be downloaded, saved and printed.
