CoramBAAF has published an updated good practice guidance for Fostering for Adoption. This is available to all agencies, to help them make sure their services meet the highest standards of practice when helping these vulnerable young children. This publication is accessible through the link below.
Fostering for Adoption (FfA) is a child-centred solution to achieving early permanence for a child. The key principle is that it is adults who manage the uncertainties and challenges, so that the burden of uncertainty is not carried by the child.
This guidance, commissioned through the Coram Centre for Early Permanence and written by CoramBAAF, is for those who are entrusted with promoting early permanence for children. It explains where Fostering for Adoption fits into the changing landscape of delivery, the practice implications, and how it shares the same principles of early permanence as concurrent planning.
This guide is aimed at prospective Fostering for Adoption carers.
A publication on transracial adoption will also be available in September.
