Section 20 & 2015 Guidance on Returning Home to Parents

NAIRO Training Event May 25th 2017 in Central London

Section 20, family reunification, and alternative routes to permanence NAIRO training event is to be held in central London:

At: Voluntary Action Islington, 200a Pentonville Road, London N1 9JP

On: Thursday 25th May 2017 

At: 9.30 am to 4.00 pm

Trainers, Professor June Thoburn, and Jon Fayle

June Thoburn will summarise the 1989-Act debates and the post-Act research on the use of Section 20, and on reunification of children from care or accommodation. She will briefly explore the relevance of the 2015 Guidance on Permanence (long-term foster care and return to parents)

A key theme of the day will be examining effective ways of involving the adults who are important to the child in the review process -specifically birth parents, relatives and foster carers. 
In the light of current debates, we shall explore the appropriate use of Section 20 as a short and longer term legal status that contributes to family connectedness for children across the age groups. 

Jon Fayle will focus on the practice of IROs in involving foster carers in the review process, looking at their role with respect to different permanence plans.

Using case vignettes drawn from actual cases, small group discussions will focus on specific issues that can arise for IROs.

Course will be £99 for NAIRO members, £140 for non members.

More details will be posted on the NAIRO website as they become available.
