Event description
RELAUNCHING REES PANEL PROJECT Training for care experienced adults who wish to become Fostering / Adoption Panel Members

About this Event

The Rees Panel Project aims to recruit and train people with care experience and to support them to become fostering / adoption panel members. Local Authority and Private Fostering and Adoption agencies run Fostering and Adoption Panels. The panels’ primary role is to make a recommendation regarding approval of Foster Carers and Adoptive Carers.

There is a need for diversity and differing perspectives within panel and we recognise that people with care experience have a unique and valuable contribution to make in the process of approving foster carers and adopters. The training and support we provide aims to equip people with the skills required to take on the role of a panel member, whilst acknowledging the complexities of utilising personal experience in a professional context.

We're holding our next Rees Panel Project Training day on:

Friday 3rd April 2020 in Huddersfield

Once you have completed the training you will be added to our register of Care Experienced Panel Members. We will assist you to participate in paid freelance panel work.

We will provide a free lunch, refreshments, and can assist with travel and accommodation, where necessary.

If you are already linked to a Fostering or Adoption Panel we will be asking for a fee from the Agency towards costs. They will also need to cover your travel costs.
