Letter to get evidence that social services think your child has been abused or is at risk, if you're applying for legal aid.
To get a copy of a child abuse assessment or child protection plan, you should:
- fill in the sample letter as best you can
- send it to the social services department at your local council
The assessment or plan must mention your child’s name and name your partner as the abuser.
You can use this as evidence if you’re applying for legal aid to stop an abusive partner seeing your child or to take away their parental responsibility.
It won’t count if the assessment or plan ended more than 2 years ago.
