AFA Scotland Trainer/Consultants offers a range of direct support to agencies and practitioners within the social work, legal and medical professions and to individuals directly involved in adoption and fostering.
We also offer practice sessions to all agencies which means a consultant is available to explore three cases relating to adoption, fostering or kinship care issues in one day. The consultant will meet with the child's social worker, a member of the family placement team as well as the carer/adopter. This meeting will take place within the agency. The purpose of the consultation will be to look at progressing permanence plans for a child, exploring issues of contact, placement of siblings, routes to permanence, difficulties in placement as well as any other child care planning dilemmas.
The agency will provide the consultant with their key aim for the session as well as background information. Each consultation will normally last for 90 minutes after which a letter will be sent to the agency confirming future considerations and plans. The rate for this service is £750.00 + VAT and travel costs per day. If your agency is interested in booking a day, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
