Parent and child fostering

| Paul Adams and Elaine Dibben

Parent and child arrangements with foster carers are a well-established phenomenon in England and Wales; less so in Scotland and Northern Ireland. In the majority of cases, this means adults with their children living with foster carers, usually in the context of care proceedings. This is a specialist area of work characterised by the uniqueness of having adult parents in the foster home. This Good Practice Guide addresses the challenges faced by agencies and foster carers. It offers valuable advice, information and a host of practical suggestions on how to deliver a high quality service.
