With 60,000 children in the care system and national child protection scandals hitting the headlines at an alarming rate, adoption and fostering are typical issues. It can be hard for prospective adopters and foster carers to get comprehensive, no-nonsense advice and guidance.

This book is here to help. Packed with practical advice and the latest information, it takes you through the entire process: from making initial enquiries and starting an application, to the approval process and the first days at home. The legislative maze is fully explained and guidance is given on planning for your new family, both emotionally and practically.

Find out what to expect when meeting your child for the first time, how to get financial help and where to get further support.

Whether you are considering foster care or adoption, want to understand and support the adoptive journey of a loved one or work with members of adoptive families, this essential guide will answer all your questions.
