The conference, entitled 'Ensuring good transitions into adoption – preparing and supporting children, their foster carers and prospective adopters' will take place in London on 20 October 2016.
We will be presenting our research, together with expert speakers focusing on various areas of practice, including preparing and supporting children, foster carers and prospective adopters during the transition to placement, and looking at best practice in managing introductions.
There will be an emphasis on sharing views and experiences across the field, with afternoon workshops covering preparing children for the move, making good introductions, supporting foster carers and their families and preparing adopters for transitions.

We believe this is a very positive development, and a chance to generate much-needed discussion about how we can bring about change in this long neglected area of policy. We hope to see you there!
