Supporting families when young children’s disabilities or health needs become known during or after adoption
The Council for Disabled Children (CDC) is seeking examples of good practice in supporting families with children aged 0-5 who have disabilities or complex needs and are adopted or in early permanence placements. Specifically, CDC is interested in children whose needs only become well known by parents/carers after the child's placement with them. Examples involving partnership working are being sought from managers, social workers and medical advisers in local authority adoption services or voluntary adoption agencies; IROs; and managers or social workers in disabled children’s services and SEN teams.

This call is open until 13 September 2017
