    Family placements can often be fraught with difficulties due to family dynamics; lack of understanding around safeguarding concerns and issues impacting upon carers’ capacity to meet a child’s needs. We know that; wherever practicably possible; children should remain within their birth families so robust assessment of these placements is essential. This one-day training course will look at best practice in undertaking Connected Persons assessments; the collection of relevant information and how to provide a robust analysis of this. It will consider the legislative/regulatory backdrop to these placements and the implications of the same for both the carer and the subject child.
