If you have experience of adoption then now is your chance to tell your story in this UK wide study commissioned by the British Association of Social Workers (BASW).
BASW is calling for evidence from young people who have been adopted, birth and adoptive parents and their families, social workers, family justice professionals, policy makers and academics for a new research study on the role of the social worker in adoption.
Adoption practice in Scotland is very different from the rest of the UK and BASW are keen to ensure that Scottish voices and experience are heard.
BASW has commissioned social work academics Professor Brid Featherstone of the University of Huddersfield and Anna Gupta of the Royal Holloway, University of London to conduct an enquiry into current adoption practice.
The key purpose of this UK-wide enquiry is to examine the role of the social worker in adoption, with a particular focus on how ethical issues and human rights legislation are understood and inform practice, and how these relate to pursuing good long-term outcomes for children and their families.
Social workers are central to the implementation of adoption policy and BASW are very keen to hear about your professional experience and opinion.
Ensure Scotland's voice is heard.
