Spotlight to fall on the role of social workers in adoption

The British Association of Social Workers (BASW) has begun work on a year-long study into the role of social workers in the adoption process.

The social worker membership organisation has commissioned two academics – Professor Brid Featherstone of the University of Huddersfield and Anna Gupta of the University of London – to compile the research, which will be focused especially on the influence of human rights legislation and ethical issues in the approach of social workers to the adoption process.

BASW called for input and views from social workers, adopted children and adoptive parents, as well as others with an interest in the field, including family lawyers and policymakers.

A series of events and focus groups are planned.

BASW Chief Executive Dr Ruth Allen said:

“The time is right for such an enquiry, ultimately this is about ensuring the best outcomes and experiences for children in care as well as their families, not just today, but for generations to come.”

She added:

“We want to hear from all those involved in adoption right across the board before coming to any judgement or conclusions.”

The blog team at Stowe is a group of writers based across our family law offices who share their advice on the wellbeing and emotional aspects of divorce or separation from personal experience. Guest contributors also regularly contribute to share their knowledge.
