- New Homestudy Report!!!
- New Application Letter (which describes in detail why we wish to change to SNs and how prepared we are to meet SN child's needs)
- All the above need to be legalised and notarised
- They suggest that the wait will only be 3-6 mths shorter than NSNs wait
The DCSF are trying to get clarification on what 'New Homestudy Report' means, does it mean an addendum to the original report? Or does it mean a whole new report? The answer to this question will be crucial in our decision as to whether or not we can move forward with our change over. If we need a WHOLE NEW homestudy report, our LA has already said we will be charged (again!!) exactly what the sw charges them. As our sw likes to go into a LOT of detail, it will likely make the new report extremely expensive and could even be out of our reach :-( Please keep everything crossed that only an addendum is required...
