Continued Support and Reviews

This page describes the reviews and assessment you shall go through when caring for a looked after child and the support available:

Placement to be approved by Senior Manager at a review meeting Agreement made between carer and Local Authority to meet child’s needs.

A social worker should work alongside you to carry out a detailed assessment of the all round care you will provide for the child and to develop an appropriate package of support for you and the child.

If this process is not being followed by your Local Authority then contact them ASAP. Your Local Authority contact details can be found here.
If at any time you are unsure of this process seek advice from agencies listed on our support organisations page.
