Your Relationships

Friends, family and YOU

You can ask to have more contact with your siblings

You have the right to have contact with your family, which includes your siblings. In some situations the type of contact you have with your siblings may vary. Talk to your caseworker about:

  • the type of contact you can have with your siblings (phone, on line, catch ups),
  • how often you can see them,
  • what kind of contact you would like to have.

Your caseworker is responsible to ensure you have contact with your siblings.
