The Legal Process and Early Permanence in Child Placement, 18 July 2018

The event is hosted by the London Courts and Coram Centre for Early Permanence supported by DfE funding and will be chaired by District Judge Celia Dawson.

The aim is to consider the role of the courts in decision making and hear from the experience of carers and recent research into early permanence.

The seminar offers topical exchange in the current policy context with and between leaders in the field, focusing on fostering for adoption and concurrent planning, the journey of carers, rights and duties towards birth families, contact, and clarity as to the legal process. It is underpinned by the new Practice Guidance The role of Fostering for Adoption in achieving early permanence for children and the recent update of longitudinal research into impact of concurrency planning.
