Doncaster County Council writes as follows –
Turning first to your contact with your daughter, having considered the above, the Local Authority is of the view that at this time direct contact between yourself and your daughter would not be in her best interests. The Local Authority is of the view that your daughter should be given the time to adjust to family life at a time where there are no court proceedings ongoing and to settle back into school life. The Local Authority is also of the view that your daughter should be allowed to enjoy a period of respite from being visited by Local Authority professionals connected with the previous Court Proceedings.
In addition, the Local Authority is in the process of identifying a therapeutic provider to provide support to your daughter and once identified, the Local Authority will seek advice from the therapeutic provider as to what level of contact, if any, with you would be in your daughter’s best interests. The Local Authority will keep you informed regarding the progression of the therapeutic support for your daughter.
As you are aware, the Local Authority has a responsibility to keep the issue of contact under review and your request for contact with your daughter will be reviewed at the next Looked After Children’s review on the 24th November 2011.
In relation to the contact between Sapphire and your daughter, should you wish to send any photographs of Sapphire (pictured on her own) to the social worker, the same will be happily received by the Local Authority on your daughter’s behalf and will be passed on to her. This is on the clear understanding that this proposed indirect contact between Sapphire and your daughter is with a view to this contact being in their best interests.
Indirect contact in this way is for the benefit of the children only. Please therefore send any photographs directly to the social worker, Maureen Siddle by email (you have her email address) or to her office address of The Martinwells Centre, Edlington. Doncaster.
Should the Local Authority be advised that indirect contact has taken place in any other way save for that as outlined in the above paragraph, the Local Authority shall suspend any further indirect contact and shall review whether contact between the children remains in their best interests.
I hope they’re proud. It’s as nasty and inhuman a piece of writing as I’ve ever seen.
