Evidence of child- or adolescent-to-parent violence is increasingly available in the context of adoption (Selwyn and Meakings, 2016) and in relation to young people on the edge of care (Biehal, 2012). Unsurprisingly, there is also evidence to suggest that such behaviour is evident in foster care, and that aggression against people and property is a factor in placements breaking down (Farmer et al, 2004; Macdonald and Kakavelakis, 2004; Sinclair et al, 2004).
The referendum vote in June 2016 for the UK to leave the EU could have a major impact on freedom of movement between Europe and the UK, and on the status of European children, adults and families currently living in the UK. This Practice Note is designed to raise awareness of some of the issues that local authorities and adoption agencies may need to consider in working with European families.
