Assessing Kinship Carers

Event Category:
Microsoft Teams

The assessment of family members and known adults as kinship carers for a child or young person unable to live with their birth family is one of the most complex that a worker can undertake. It is only through the completion of full and robust assessments that decisions can be made in the child’s best interests.

This workshop will look at good practice in the assessment of kinship carers and how this differs from the assessment of other types of family-based carers. Issues of power and partnership as well as risk assessment will also be considered.
