Permanent Care Conversions Webinar - March 2019


A permanent care conversion from foster or kinship care is a process you might be asked to consider if you have had a child or young person in your care for a number of years. Permanent care is for the life of the child and requires careful thinking about the responsibilities and tasks you are being asked to consider. FCAV Project Coordinator Deb Collard talks about what a permanent care conversion involves, including some of the legal requirements to be considered for permanent care. Deb talked to carer Vanessa who is currently going through this process, looked at the assessment and training undertaken by prospective permanent carers, and explores available supports post legalisation.
