Hi guys long story short I’m caring for my cousin
She 31 born with congenital heart disease she has long jaw spine problems deformed hands and feet .. Along with Learning difficulties and behaviour problems. Really been let down by social services.. 
Parents think she has valproate syndrome as both epileptic and took medication through out pregnancy.
Im having a nightmare with family and council when she was statemented giving me her statement.. 
They stop her social worker when she was living in Manchester now in London with me getting real support and care .
I don’t know where to start
