Introduction to Adoption and Fostering Panels for New Panel Members

December 1 at 9:45 am to 2:00 pm

The Adoption and Children (Scotland) Act 2007 provides the overarching framework for adoption and fostering panels in Scotland.  The Promise has encouraged all of us to consider our practice and it makes key recommendations which affect the lives of children, young people, foster carers and adopters. Equally, many of the recommendations that panels make have life-long consequences for those involved.  It is therefore important that panel members have both an understanding of the role of panel as well as having the opportunity to consider their contribution to this process. This workshop will reflect the updated Effective Adoption and Fostering Panels in Scotland good practice guide.

Learning Objectives

This workshop will enable participants to:

  • Consider the legal and regulatory framework for adoption and fostering panels;
  • Explore the role of different panel members;
  • Analyse the process of making good recommendations;
  • Discuss regular dilemmas which arise at panel
