The Concurrent Planning Service

Adopting with Concurrent Planning is a service for babies and young children who enter care and are likely to need adoption, but who also still have a small chance of being reunited with their birth family. Our carers are dually approved as both foster carers and adopters. This means that carers will initially perform the role of foster carer while the courts decide whether or not a child can return to his/her birth family. During this time the child will need to see their birth family regularly and carers will need to bring the child or children to a contact centre so they can see their parents. The service is run in partnership between two charities and voluntary adoption agencies, Adoption Matters and Caritas Care.
