Fostering/SGO for family member - violent biological father
looking for some advice. My niece is currently in foster care and I am being assessed for fostering/sgo. My brother has mental health issues and can become violent. We have had no incidents at our house with him for over 4 years however damage was caused to my vehicle last night and whilst i cannot prove it, i know it was him as yesterday certain information i had given the SW came to light and he wasn't too happy about it. I'm now concerned they will not let my niece come to me as they will say he could come to the house again. any ideas? We're installing CCTV and the house already has police flags due to his violence. he lives about 10 minutes away. We have his other daughter regularly at weekends and holidays and have done without issue for over 10 years. I manage his contact with her due to his issues and she hasn't actually seen him since summer. i know it's the stress of court proceedings etc that has tipped him over the edge but i'm worried this will ruin everything now. I've already told my sw that we would be willing to call police if he ever turned up and also agreed to the possibility of moving house. I don't know what else I can do and I'm desperate for my niece to stay with the family if possible. Adoption would break so many hearts.
