Fostering can avoid vulnerable children spending too long in the care system.

Fostering for Adoption

In particular, Fostering for Adoption (FfA) can achieve early permanence for children who are in care and minimise the impact on them of multiple carers and uncertainty.

Fostering for Adoption Good Practice Guide (2017), commissioned through the Coram Centre for Early Permanence and written by CoramBAAF, is aimed at you if you are entrusted with promoting early permanence for children.

It explains where Fostering for Adoption (FfA) fits into the changing landscape of delivery, the practice implications, and how it shares the same principles of early permanence as concurrent planning.

Fostering for Adoption – A guide for prospective Carers is aimed at helping you decide whether you could be an FfA carer and explain the routes to becoming approved as an FfA carer.
