Hi There,

I'm not sure I would imagine it would be down to the social worker that was holding the meeting.

It's worth asking them in advance.

Hi Nick

I think that would be great idea!...unfortunately, I dont think the Social Services would and I dont know how it would be viewed by other proffessionals either. As Darren says, you could ask them... on the other hand, I see no reason why you couldn't take notes at any meetings.

Best of luck

The definition of "detract" is to diminish or lessen the importance, value or effectiveness of something...In my opinion the real reason was that they would have felt uncomfortable and less in control of the meeting. Wasn't your solicitor allowed to sit in on the meeting with you?

Its not unheard of for these people to twist things and be economical with the truth, thats has been my experience at times! It was a good idea, even if you werent able to carry it out!

I find that when making notes, rather than trying to write everything down, its better just to record key words and relevant sentences that will help you remember what was said, and then write it up afterwards.

I think you would need to explain that the reason for recording the meeting is nothing sinister, but to help you remember the facts especially as you feel you can't write fast enough and therefore may miss some of the key points.

It may be worth asking if you can have someone to make notes on your behalf as an alternative - which will probably also not be allowed.

Tell them you are being honest about this - you could have taped it without their permission.

Good luck with it

hi,
i asked the same thing and was told the same thing,but i found that as long as you have good reason and permission of the officer,you can they dont like it as they have to be on best behaviour,the recording cant be used in court but can be heard by your and your exs solicitor,
as for other professionals you could explain that taking notes is not an option for you,i understand why you would want to do this,
my officer not only mislead but lied to me,the officer will take notes then afterwards write the report,the report will not show the emotion and somtimes not what went on people see things differently and notes or not taken by you will have no bearing on the report,but a recording may have,please let me know you outcome.
GOOD LUCK

take you time, the point of giving you all those papers is just to annoy you,you have said youve got a disabillity and find it hard to read/ write so they give you 125 sheets to do
any other transparent organisation would just let you record it,this is the reason so many dont trust them
take your time,dont give up,ask someone you trust to help you
GOOD LUCK,
