4 hours CPD


Adoption practitioners and managers (Voluntary Adoption Agencies, Regional Adoption Agencies and Local Authorities) and Independent Professionals.


    The Concurrent Planning service is a joint service run by Caritas Care and Adoption Matters. Since its inception in 2014 they have placed over 120 children in concurrent planning placements across the North West. They have also been involved in the rehabilitation of 14 children to birth parents or family members. There has been a lot of learning on the way and this continues to be the case.  

    The service is looking forward to sharing what they have learnt about what works well alongside the challenges they have experienced.

    In this webinar, we will consider:

    • What we have learnt about effective assessments and the qualities we are looking for from our carers.
    • Effective supporting of carers
    • Lessons learnt from working with the Local Authorities, referrals and the type of backgrounds of children that are placed by the service
    • Reflect on the learning from our rehabilitations that have taken place
    • What our carers and birth parents say about concurrent planning

    You will have an opportunity to learn what Adoption Matters and Caritas Care are doing in terms of a specific aspect of this work, whilst at the same time having the opportunity to identify the situations you find most challenging and work in smaller groups to consider various solutions.

    You will be able to network with practitioners from other agencies, share best practice and glean new ideas.


    A member of staff will be in touch with attendees one week prior to the event to share a pre-event delegate pack.

    If you have any questions regarding this webinar, please contact our Practice Manager Petra Jodlova.
