    Hi Guys.
    I really need some help - without giving to much info I need some advice.
    My niece aged 14 doesn't want to live with her dad - my late sisters partner - he is a complete idiot and alcoholic.
    I want her to live with me, but don't know where to start.
    She wants to go and live with her best friend, but I would rather she came to live with family. (the mum is a lovely lady who has really helped my niece)
    Any advice on who I need to contact etc to make this happen.

    Thanks for any help, support you can give.

    hi hun:) 1firstly sit with your niece & ask her what she wants to do?
    2nd does her best friends mum want/can she foster her
    3rd social services will ask your niece these questions.talk to her she could live with you but see her friend on sleepovers etc? they will try to do what is best for her.talk with her that is the key.hope that helps wish you the best xxxxx

    Thx guys - I'll let you know what happens.
    We're taking her on holiday (it was planned weeks ago) for 2 weeks this saturday, so I'll make some calls when we get back.
    Think I'll make an appointment with the CAB as well.
    I really want to make sure everything is above board and legal etc.
