What do Family Placement Workers need to know when they present at Adoption and Fostering Panels?

The role of assessing prospective adopters and foster carers is a skilled one requiring an extensive knowledge and understanding of what children and young people need as outlined by The Promise. Conducting foster carer reviews is equally as important. The interface between the assessing and supervising social worker and adoption and fostering panels can be both complex as well as interesting. This workshop will explore this key aspect of family placement work.
