Permanence, long-term foster placements and ceasing to look after a child

The Department for Education (DfE) has published updated guidance on permanence, long-term foster placements and ceasing to look after a child.

Amendments involve: delegating decision making about looked-after children to their carers; arrangements for making, supervising and reviewing long-term foster care placements; and assessment and planning arrangements where the responsible authority is considering ceasing to look after a child.

Here is a copy of the Statutory Guidance for Local Authorities:  Stat_Guidance_Permanence_2015
