Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Felicia hills Introduction In this assessment am going to explaining four different cases and am going to be answering question for example how there got there, where there are, who is going to care for them and what are there roles, Who is going to make sure the carers are doing thing right / CRB checks and What activity are you going to take with them, Am going to include the legislation to back up my answers. I will be using names in each situation but there are not real name to protects confidently for the real people Situation 6 year old girl child A 6 year old child who lives with a single parent mother, she is addicted to drugs and also an alcoholic who leaves alcohol bottles all around the house. She does not care for her child; she brings different men in and out the house and sleeps with them for money. The mother physically abuses the child she hits her when ever she is in a bad mood. The child goes to school takes off her jumper and she has scars all over her arms, the teacher calls the parents and the mother said she fell so the teacher calls social service, social service pays visit to her house there found the house dirty with empty alcohol bottles all over the house. So base on the evidence there collected social service goes and request for a court order from the court to take the child and put her in foster care and the court agree because there can see the child is in real danger where she is. What is a foster care/ and what are there roles? Foster care is where a child goes if there are not safe where there are before so there can look for a safe place till social service finds a permanent place for them. ...read more.


The friend could be a rapist and could walk in another youth room and sexually abuse them in the care home without the careers having any idea about it while it?s happening. My overall all view on residential care home is a negative even doe the positive plays a big part but is a negative because according to UN convention on the rights of the child the children should be safe and treat equally and allow friends that are not known by anyone is a hazards to the youths that don?t know them friends. Situation 4 respite care In this situation am going to be using Lisa as the cover name to protect the dignity of the real person. Lisa lives at home with both her parents; her parents argue all the time. Her dad is very aggressive towards her mother he physically abuses her and also emotionally abuses Lisa by calling her name for example your ugly and I wish you was never born. Lisa is also suffering from neglect from both are parents. Because of the argument Lisa is unable to sleep at night so Lisa always sleeping in class and the teacher asked her why you always sleeping in class, and she said because me mum and my dad fight all night every day and my dad would hit my mum? so the teacher tells the social service and there said that the child is in danger where she is so there need to move her. So the social service went to visit her home got evidence and went to go get a court order to put her in respite care and the court agreed. What is respite care? Respite care is a short-term care service designed to help people take a break or to provide cover in case of illness or emergency. This is available for a minimum of two weeks where an experienced fully trained live in care professional will move into the home and continue the routines and lifestyle of the person being cared for, reducing disruption and anxiety. ...read more.


Adoption finds children a place there can call new home and have peace. My personal strongest positive view is the fact that the children would have a permanent place to live for example when it comes to foster care it is only temporary but with adoption the child will have a permanent place. Adoption is also very good because there are some people that are not able to get a child of their own but really want a child now there can just adopt a child. According to the ?Human Rights Act 1998 gives further legal effect in the UK to the fundamental rights and freedoms contained in the European Convention on Human Rights, these rights not only impact matters of life and death, they also affect the rights you have in your everyday life: what you can say and do your beliefs, your right to a fair trial and other similar basic entitlements?. (Direct gov, human right act 17 March 2011) With every positive there is a negative in the Connor somewhere, am now going to talk about the negative view of adoption. Not everyone wants a child for the same reason as other for example someone that is not able to have a child would treat a child with value the child people there cant get one themselves but not everyone is loving because there is some people who only adopt not because there want a child but because there want money. This is very dangerous because the children that go through adoption has already been suffered a lot specially from neglect and if someone wants a child just for money then there not going to really care about the child. Some adoption parents will take the money that is for the children needs from the local authority and would only use half to buy what the child needs and pocket the rest.
