    Welcome to the community @nsummers123 :) It's great to have you on board!

    Would you be able to tell us a little more about what you mean by your son's children being placed in an AirBnB?

    Is this so they have somewhere to stay temporarily, until they get housed?

    My son was in 365 day accommodation and schooling. He was served notice by that provider. The only accomodation they could find is an AirBnB which he has been in for 3 months - with no schooling and it's not Ofsted regulated. He is not allowed to go outside.

    Hi @nsummers123 :) 

    That sounds like a really unsuitable arrangement. 

    Do you mind me asking if the provider is a local authority, or a private provider?
