Early Permanence

  • I understand that adoption is a good plan for children who cannot live within their birth families and that adoption can lead to good outcomes for children

  • I will contact the Service Manager for adoption when I am working with unborn children and infants where the plan is to issue care proceedings and remove the child from the parents’ care

  • Where possible I will consider ‘fostering for adoption’ or ‘concurrency’ at the earliest possible opportunity

  • I ensure that my assessments prior to planning are discussed with my Manager and approved

  • I ensure that my rationale for my decisions is clearly recorded on the child’s file
