Read about a new international fostering project managed by IOM, the UN Migration Agency, which is being led by CoramBAAF and Coram Children’s Legal Centre in the UK.
CoramBAAF has been working with CASA and SEPAN to raise awareness of the lifelong issues for adopted adults. Two papers have been prepared and shared with DfE officials and the Adoption Leadership Board. These set out the background to the legislation, and the areas of concern that need to be considered in any future guidance and during the development of Regional Adoption Agencies (RAAs).
