Son who is 16, has autism, Conduct disorder, severe EBD had a forensic Psychological report done back in November. I know CAMHS have a copy & they have given a copy to his social worker but they will not give 1 to me. He is in voluntary care (so I still have full parental responsibility)....this report determines what the next step is going to be but I do not understand why they won't give me a copy of the report.
Would not your/his GP have a copy, or else have you considered Citizens Advice? ~ via the following link:
Thanks for that will have a look. GP hasn't got a copy either

It was the first thing that came to mind, so no problems. With a bit of luck, other community members will be able to advice you better than I, but none the less I hope you get it sorted, and all the best.
Have a good one, and many many more.
If you can't get help from Citizens Advice as Deepthought suggests, please call the NAS helpline on 0808 800 4104 (http://www.autism.org.uk/get-involved/about-us/contact-us.aspx) and explain the situation, and someone from the NAS should be able to help you.

It all depends on whether your son has given consent for you to read the report. If he hasn't, and there is something in the report that you need to be aware of, in the best interest of your child, you will be given access. Otherwise if you didn't think your son had the capacity to decline you access to the report, you can contest it but it would require an assessment for capacity under the mental health act. If he has given consent, then yes, you should get access to it.
