About the Event
It’s inevitable that in your role as a foster carer, you’ll have to work in close proximity with birth parents. This is often a calm and agreeable situation for both parties. But sometimes it can be tenser. To help you in your role, this course will cover the basics of working with birth parents. The course will provide an overview of the key legislation (The Children's Act 1989) and will define exactly what parental responsibility and delegate authority both are. It will discuss permanency planning and the various options; it will help you to manage contact effectively, and it will help you work together with birth parents.
