Assessment of Family and Friends Carers
This one day course considers how assessments of family and friends carers can be carried out so that these carers’ strengths and competencies can be recognised, and their support needs identified. Consideration will be given to identifying and managing risk, and how such factors would influence a decision about whether to approve these carers. The course will draw on new messages from research about family and friends care, and consider the legal framework for these assessments, including the different requirements according to legal status. The training will include a model for family and friends assessments that has been developed by Family Rights Group.
Course aimed at all: all social work practitioners/managers who carry out or are responsible for assessments of family and friends carers, including social workers, family placement workers (fostering or permanency), team managers, service managers and CAFCASS workers.
