Looked After Children

The team is responsible for managing cases of children who are looked after by the local authority, subject to full care orders or are who are in care proceedings.

The team work closely with colleagues from Fostering to identify suitable placements for children in foster care and also work with the Adoption team to match children to adoptive families where there is a plan of adoption. The team hold regular care planning meetings with associated professionals and work alongside education colleagues to create Personal Education Plans for Children Looked After to ensure that their education needs are being met.
