Not trusting our support worker

jenmas1985 Member Posts: 2 Listener
Hi there my children and I have dyslexia and my daughter and I sometimes have anxiety we help each other a lot through what were going through and talk a lot we have people judging us and sometimes not being nice online and in the community we have a support worker that whispers to our newly met social worker about us and we feel we cannot trust her as she like to join in with the family telling lies about us and it’s not been pleasant at all we don’t trust her as she says her and the other support worker for their family don’t speak but we’re not sure any more what’s should we do.  The only support worker we kinda trust is my sons and she’s from baranados and believes in both my children not just one

    Hello @jenmas1985   Pleased to meet you . Thank you for joining and sharing.

    Sorry to hear this about your support.

    Please if I can suggest you have two choices a number of options.

    First one is your care and that is important if you think you need to complain I would suggest that, not good to hear this at all.

    All support workers are bound code of confidently.

    Should not be talking to others.

    I have option choice two which is to find another support worker.

    I recommend the following .  Mental health charities.

    All offer floating support advice on welfare, benefits and anything else your are concerned with.

    Might not be in all areas.  You can apply through GP or self refer.

    Please if I can help with anything, please ask.

    Happy to help be supportive.

    Please take care and keep safe.

    Getting a little better just had a lot of bad things happen to my family in the community and my children and I are slowly trusting people again but we really DOnt wants judgement From them we really just would like to bond and be a family again with whatever we have been going through to make us happier and stronger and know that there is good people out there that are kind and genually care rather than keeps bringing up my past to move on And to have a bright futures for myself and my children And family and friends to know we can do this

    Hi @jenmas1985, I'm glad trust is slowly coming back. I imagine it's been a long process.
