Local authorities are continuing to face the huge challenge of spending cuts, whilst at the same time, there are greater numbers of children in care who have higher needs to meet. Join BAAF and NAFP to discuss how we work in partnership to provide high quality placements to children and young people to meet their needs.

The day will provide us with the opportunity to:

  • Explore fast-changing and confusing environment
  • Explore children's needs driving services
  • Explore how we improve working in partnership between IFPs and local authorities

This seminar will bring together local authority team managers and commissioners, with independent and voluntary sector fostering providers to share, learn and build solutions. Presentations include:

Moving forward in fostering - Marc Rooney, DfE

Most appropriate placement - NAFP

Changing times - Match Foster Care

Working in partnership - Doncaster Children's Services Trust

Placement disruptions - Jon Fayle
