Conference Report: Somebody else’s child

leave a comment »

I was part of a blogging and tweeting team at BAAF’s Somebody Else’s Child private fostering event earlier this week. I learned loads about a topic I’d not really considered much before.

Private fostering is where a child lives with someone who is not their parent or close relative for 28 days or more. The majority of private fostering arrangements work well and offer the child a safe and secure environment. However, cases of child abuse and child trafficking have been identified in some private fostering arrangements.

You can watch some of the presentations online on BAAF’s livestream and if you’re a fan of twitter, search for the twitter hashtag #pfweek.

leave a comment »

The fact that you’re reading a blog on adoption means that it’s probably safe to say that you are comfortable accessing information and resources on adoption online… what do you like about online information, what don’t you like…?

I’m running a survey on online resources in adoption and fostering – have your say and let me know what you think, it only takes a couple of minutes.

If you complete any of the surveys by 28th February, you can enter a prize draw to win a print worth £45 from The Day That – beautiful photos of sunrise on a day that’s memorable for you.
