Who can we represent?
We can help you whether you are a parent, a grandparent or another relative of a child where social services have become involved. We can represent children in care proceedings, usually through their Children’s Guardian.
We also can advise you if you wish to adopt a child or become a special guardian of a child, whether there has been involvement from a Local Authority or not. In Adoption cases, we can act for the child, parent/s or the prospective adopter/s.

Our friendly and approachable team are based at our offices in Crystal Palace, Camberwell, Bromley and Mitcham. If you have been contacted by social services, and/or if you have a query about Special Guardianship or Adoption, please call the team now on 020 8768 6849 for a no obligation chat.
