International Kinship Care Guide

This guide is intended as a good practice guide for professionals placing children from local authority care with family members abroad. The guidance sets out to define the steps which should be taken whilst assessing potential carers overseas, recommendations for the ongoing relationship between the relevant authorities in each country to ensure that responsibilities are clear and are mutually agreed, and barriers to permanency which would need to be considered before placement, or which would need additional support for the child and carer in order to ensure that the child has a successful and permanent placement.
