SGO / care arrangement order

My niece was placed into my care just before Christmas last year.
Our social worker is now asking us to get a SGO or a care arrangement order to secure a permanent arrangement. Which we are happy to do.
I was wondering if anyone has any information that will help me? Thank you.

Well they should have a team who will assess you and support you all through the process - have you got a social worker allocated to do it yet?

We have just got a new social worker a month or so back as the last one has gone off on sick and they don't know when he is coming back. We went through some assessments when my niece first came to live with us. At the last CP meeting we were asked to get a lawyer to sort out getting a SGO or CAO and our social worker was told to talk to there financial department to sort out helping us financially. We are still waiting to hear back from her.
