PN 65. Decisions about the assessment of couples and other partnerships in foster care (England)

Publication date: 2017

Fostering services will sometimes be approached by an individual who wants to foster, but they have a partner who does not want to be involved, or at least who does not want to be assessed as a foster carer. It is important that fostering services have a good understanding of the law in this regard, and what that means in practice. The Department for Education (DfE) statutory guidance in England on assessment and approval of foster carers (2013) sets out the legal position.

PN 64. Best practice in meetings between prospective adopters and children prior to matching

Publication date: 2017

This Practice Note provides guidance for social workers and policy makers on managing meetings between prospective adopters and children prior to matching. We use the term “pre-meets” here as an umbrella term to cover these meetings, which are also known as one-off meetings, chemistry meets, bump into days or mini-meets. These meetings usually take place before the matching panel. We believe the principles also apply to play dates or play days, which take place after the matching panel as part of an early introduction plan.

PN 63. Restraint and physical intervention in foster care

Publication date: 2017

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).

PN 62. The impact of the decision in the European Referendum

Publication date: 2017

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.
