Completing a child's permanence report
This guide is designed to help social workers to manage and complete a comprehensive and evidence-based permanence report for a looked after child. It is to be used by assessing social workers to complete a Child’s Permanence Report using the CoramBAAF Form CPR (for England).
Adoption for looked after children: messages from research
The Adoption Research Initiative was a Government-funded programme to explore the effects of the Adoption and Children Act 2002. Seven large and complex studies considered a range of areas, including adoption, disruption, long-term fostering, and matching practices. This summary brings together and analyses the results of all seven studies.
Growing up in foster care
Long-term foster care is rarely mentioned as a positive option; yet, for a significant group of vulnerable children, growing up in a long-term foster family is their best chance of a secure family life. This research study provides a fascinating insight into the experiences of 58 children, their foster carers, a sample of their birth parents and their social workers.
Looking after unaccompanied asylum seeking and refugee children
There is a lack of awareness and an inconsistent approach across the country to caring for asylum-seeking and refugee children, partly because the arrival of these children is often seen as a temporary issue that does not require longer-term planning, training and investment. But these are children in need, and local authorities are required to identify their needs and to provide services to meet them.
