During the Covid 19 crisis, local authorities need ensure that they are able to fulfil their role and responsibilities toward young people in the care system. In a period when face to face contact with children and young people is more limited, ensuring the welfare of those children and supporting their placements creates a particularly potentially complex set of challenges. This webinar explores the ramifications for relationship building, supporting parents, contact and care planning.
In particular we will:
• Consider the impact of the crisis on practice with children in the care system;
• Reflect on the particular responsibilities toward working with young people who are in, or who left, the care system;
• Discuss the particular challenges facing practitioners, managers and independent reviewing officers;
• Think about the implications of current Government guidance regarding statutory duties toward children in care;
• Identify the messages from research in relation to care planning, and consider how these can be applied to the current context;
• Explore ways of supporting foster carers, kinship carers and birth families;
• Devise strategies that can address these challenges to placement stability in the current context;
• Apply a rights-based approach to permanency planning in a period of crisis.
