The Adoption and Children (Coronavirus) (Amendment) (No.2) Regulations 2020 came into force on 25 September 2020. The Regulations can be accessed in full here with Department for Education guidance guidance for local authorities on children’s social care.
We hope the following document will be helpful to practitioners delivering services in the current situation:
- Kinship and Covid-19: Supporting children and carers in forming new family arrangements
- Initial Assessments of Family and Friends Carers during the CV-19 pandemic has been co-produced by the Kinship Care Alliance and CoramBAAF. It should be read as an appendix to the earlier document, Initial Family and Friends Care Assessment: A good practice guide.
The Nuffield Family Justice Observatory have produced guidance on The Potential Impacts of Covid-19 on Kinship Carers and Special Guardians
The Family Rights Group have produced Advice for family and friends carers (known as kinship carers) during the Coronavirus Crisis
