Children, young people, foster carers and fostering agencies have managed amazingly well since the outbreak of Covid-19 in the UK. They have adapted, learned and shown huge resilience. Now it seems that social distancing, local/national restrictions and other measures are here to stay for some time, much of what we have become so familiar with may have changed for good. This webinar will help fostering agencies to take stock of what they learned:

  • What has worked well
  • What is still unclear
  • New ways of working that they will keep

Speakers will address some of the key topics where fostering practice has had to change, adapt and develop:

  • Covid-19 and virtual social work - children in foster care, fostering social workers and fostering services (Laura Cook, UEA)
  • Making the most of virtual panels (Catherine Lockett, NAFP)
  • How are children and their birth families keeping in touch? (Ruth Copson, UEA)
  • Medical reports in a time of limited GP capacity (Jon Palin, medical adviser)
  • Case study - learning from the experiences of a regional fostering agency (Nichola Mulholland, Foster Cares Ltd)

Participants will be able to return to their own agencies and re-evaluate their practice in the light of learning from the webinar, supporting their continued service development over the coming months, as uncertain as these may be.
