I have a sister aged 14, is currently on a preservation order, and wishes to reside with me in my care.
she has her own solicitor and CPS caseworker and has expressed to both of them that she wants to leave home, due to an unsafe and unstable environment at home. however, there seems to be no change, a review of the order has been adjourned at court increasing the duration of this process even more. the environment at home is unsatisfactory and she continues to ask me when can she come live with me.
Iv had little success when speaking with CPS regarding the issue. just for a little more insight, there are 3 other younger siblings whom have all be removed from home due to the unsafe conditions. But the case worker continues to tell me that my sister cant be removed due too her age (14) what are my options?
thank you in advanced.
