Caring for someone else’s child

Our Friends and Families Policy describes how we engage with friends and family members who care for children who cannot live with their parents.

In particular it provides information on our implementation of the duties in the Children Act 1989 in respect of children and young people who, because they are unable to live with their parents, are being brought up by members of their extended families, friends or other people who are connected with them.
