Government launches new policy outlining reform for children's social care
The Government has published Putting children first – Delivering our vision for excellent children’s social care outlining reform for children’s social care over the next four years.
As an independent adoption and adoption support agency working with professionals in local authorities, we know that social workers face challenging decisions on a daily basis, responsible for assessing and determining the right options for some of our most vulnerable children.
That’s why we welcome the Government’s plans to provide social workers with the knowledge and skills required to achieve permanence for children through the professional development programme Achieving Permanent. This will ensure vulnerable children who have experienced complex trauma among their birth families have the chance of finding a permanent home with adoptive parents.
