Placement
Foster-care-long-term
Free text This guide is concerned with children who move into permanent placements and then have to move again contrary to expectations. Disruption can occur during introductions, and before or after a court order is made. When and how a placement disrupts will make a fundamental difference to the child, the prospective adopters, the birth family, and the agencies concerned. Disruption do not happen overnight. There is usually a process leading to disruption, even if it happen at an early stage or during introductions. If carers and workers together can devise an early warning system, a final crisis may be averted.
