CoramBAAF’s Panel Advisers (Adoption & Fostering) Practice Forum provides a unique opportunity to discuss professional practice and share knowledge and expertise with panel advisers. 

The forums will help you to keep up-to-date about national policy and law, contribute to policy development, and refer topics and examples of good practice to CoramBAAF’s advisory committees.

Benefits for members
