| Hilary Saunders, Julie Selwyn and Eileen Fursland

The importance of maintaining sibling relationships is widely recognised, but it is not always easy to find families willing and able to adopt sibling groups. This Good Practice Guide examines how adoption agency staff and children’s social workers handle the adoption process for large sibling groups, with an emphasis on practices and policies which may help or hinder prospective sibling group adopters and the children they wish to adopt.

The study is based on in-depth interviews undertaking with 37 sibling group adopters and staff in 14 adoption agencies, which aimed to identify best practice in placing sibling groups for adoption, and what works and what doesn’t work for children, adopters and agencies.
