Testimonials CF Social Work Ipswich



I have found Cheryl to be a very competent Director and practitioner. I have worked with her on a few projects and she was extremely diligent and professional throughout. In my experience of working with CF Social Work I have found her to be a promoter of good social work practice.

Hi Cheryl, I remember reading an interview you did using those questions in an assessment I read for Adoption Panel, I was impressed. This is really helpful in terms of my assessment.

I did want to say though that that was one of the best reports I have ever had from you, it was in-depth and very clear without any hesitation. It’s the first time mum has accepted the situation which again confirms how clear the report is.

Hi Cheryl- sorry for short earlier response - had just finished a visit with a GAL to see some children. Yes it is v. Sad- I went through everything as I could with L to ensure she understood - which she did. There were tears... But I think this is kinder on her than dragging her through a 2 day hearing where the outcome is highly likely to be the same - thank you for your help and kindness towards her.

I can confirm that the final hearing in respect the P children concluded on Friday.I would just like to thank you for your assistance in this matter. Your evidence was compelling and enhanced the Local Authority’s case greatly. Counsel has commented on how well you presented your evidence. Well done and thank you. We are much obliged and I look forward to working with you again.

We have commissioned CF Social Work over a number of years to undertake a variety of assessments. Without exception these have always been to a high standard and value for money . They have always provided reports on time even when at times the timeframe was pretty tight. From my experience I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

I have found CF Social Work Limited to be a professional, reliable, prompt and efficient agency providing thorough and detailed reports which have been used effectively in Court proceedings.
