Inquiry: the role of the social worker in adoption

Call for proposals

The British Association of Social Workers is seeking a suitably qualified organisation or consortium to establish an inquiry to consider The role of social work in adoption. 

Promoting and supporting adoption is a key policy focus across the UK.   Currently, many aspects of this focus are the subject of considerable attention and debate.   Social workers are central to this area of practice and are involved in a range of activities such as: recruitment, assessment, matching and post-adoption support. However, there are few fora available to them and other stakeholders to explore the issues that emerge in practice in this very contested and complex area of work.  

Proposal welcome for submission: Wednesday 2 December and Friday 18 December (inclusive)

Applicants with shortlisted proposals will be invited to attend an interview in the week commencing Monday 11 January 2016
