    Hello. I am new to this website and I am looking for some advice. We have 2 children in our care and at the moment we are foster carers but soon we will be their special guardians. We have had them for almost 6 months now and although we have received regular pay we don’t receive their child benefits neither are they getting free school meals. When we first got the children we were told we would receive their child benefits and that they are eligible for free school meals but now our social worker says we are not eligible for either. It has been very difficult working with our social worker and we haven’t really received as much support as we would of liked so if somebody on here could give us some advice on exactly what we are entitled to I would really appreciate it. AT times it feels like we have been left alone, nobody came to check on the children after they were first placed with us for 30 days and we weren’t assigned a social worker for 5 weeks, social services have been poor and not helpful at all.
    Many thanks.
