Placement of looked-after children in EU member states
Guidance for local authorities asked to place a child from EU member states into a children's home or with a foster carer.
This is for:
- independent reviewing officers
- local authorities with children’s services responsibilities
Local authorities should follow this process when dealing with requests from authorities in other EU member states to place a child into a children’s home or with a foster carer within their area.
Independent reviewing officers chair reviews of care plans for children living in children’s homes or foster care.
