Did you know there are an estimated 8,000 children from overseas living in the UK with somebody else? The recent figures show only 5% are known to local authorities for support. The rest remain invisible.
There are some simple things all professionals can do to identify, safeguard and plan for children from overseas and the UK living in private fostering arrangements in your area.
By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
- Identify a private fostering situation
- Understand the Local Authority’s duties towards privately fostered children
- Know how to notify about private fostering arrangements
- Understand the legal framework in relation to Private Fostering
