The Chairs’ Development Forum is co-ordinated by AFKA Scotland on behalf of members who chair adoption and fostering panels. Panel advisers are also invited to join once or twice a year. Members have the opportunity to hear about new developments which directly and indirectly affect and influence their work on panels.
The forum has independent members as well as representatives from local authorities, voluntary agencies and independent fostering providers. Practice, research and legal aspects are covered, and members have the opportunity to share practice developments and dilemmas as well as influence the work that AFKA Scotland does.
The Chairs’ Development Forum meets four times a year on MS Teams.
