3.5 hours CPD


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


    This practice webinar will think about early permanence from the perspective of the assessing and supervising social worker, family finder and child’s social worker. An opportunity to share practice learning and reflections from these different points of view about early permanence assessments, placements and outcomes.

    The aim is for the session to be thinking about practice pointers related to early permanence.

    From the assessing and supporting placements point of view, this will be how to assess effectively, how to manage EP carers through the referral and placement process.

    From the family finder point of view, this will be their thinking about identifying children that may be suitable, examples of this – including creative ones – and good practice around making placements.

    From the child’s social worker point of view, it will be learning about EP through making a placement. 

    You will have an opportunity to learn what Coram Ambitious for Adoption 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.
