Permanence Seminar

Recently, Excel Fostering and members from the NW Independent Providers Forum and the Fostering Network delivered a Permanence Seminar to Senior Managers and Decision Makers from Local Authorities across the North West and Cumbria. The aim was to look at long term fostering as a permanency option for looked after children. Delegates who attended the event were able to consider the implications for practice and listen to the views and perspectives of young people and foster carers via a film that was commissioned for the event. This film was a fundamental piece that was aired at the event, along with speakers from the Care Leavers Association, the Fostering Network and the Department for Education.
