The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (Steps) (England) Regulations 2021 came into force on 29 March 2021. CoramBAAF have produced a summary of these regulations. They can be accessed in full here.
We have produced a number of documents that we hope will be helpful to practitioners delivering services in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic:
- Short breaks and Covid-19
- Public health measures and the placement of children in foster care
- Supervision and Assessment of Foster Carers and Prospective Foster Carer Households
- Making arrangements for contact
The Fostering Network has also prepared helpful guidance and advice for fostering services and foster carers on the Coronavirus outbreak.
National Association of Child Contact Centres (NACCC) has issued an update on how Child Contact Centres are operating during the Coronavirus crisis.
