AFA Scotland continues to work closely with the Universities of Stirling and York to support the Permanently Progressing research project. The interview phase - meeting with people involved in adoption, fostering and kinship placements is now underway. Progress has been helped by an excellent response from the local authorities and voluntary agencies who have identified potential participants. A presentation on the progress of the research will be made to the Social Work Scotland Adoption and Fostering Group on 21 April, 2017.
