Building on research by Jenny Kenrick, a child psychotherapist, published in 2009, Coram has been raising awareness of the impact on vulnerable infants subject to care proceedings of contact arrangements ordered for them.
See the menu on the right for Coram’s response to the Department for Education’s Review of Contact Arrangements for Children in Care (August 2012), which highlights the need for improved guidance to ensure the infant’s experience is taken into account when making contact arrangements.
Coram Practice Notes set out briefly for managers and practitioners the key points Coram suggests should be considered in improving practice. See the menu on the right for Coram Practice Note 2: ‘Infancy Contact Research’.
