The Adoption and Children (Coronavirus) (Amendment) Regulations 2020 were introduced on 24th April and have significant implications for family placement work in England.
We hope the following document will be helpful to practitioners delivering services in the current situation:
- Initial Assessments of Family and Friends Carers during the CV-19 pandemic has been co-produced by the Kinship Care Alliance and CoramBAAF. It should be read as an appendix to the earlier document, Initial Family and Friends Care Assessment: A good practice guide.
The Nuffield Family Justice Observatory have produced guidance on The Potential Impacts of Covid-19 on Kinship Carers and Special Guardians
The Family Rights Group have produced Advice for family and friends carers (known as kinship carers) during the Coronavirus Crisis
Grandparents Plus have also produced information about The Impact of Coronavirus on Kinship Families
