UPDATED GUIDANCE AVAILABLE (MAY 2020)

USING VIDEO CLIPS IN FINDING ADOPTIVE FAMILIES FOR CHILDREN:  A PRACTICE GUIDE

In 2018 we launch a new good practice guide which was the culmination of 18 months' work by the project group which has been investigating the use of video clips in family finding.  We now have updated guidance (May 2020) to accompany the section on editing videos (appendix 1) which is available to view here

The guidance is designed to help social workers and foster carers who are most likely to make the videos, but also to address the concerns of others within organisations who have questions about the technical and legal issues involved.  Hard copies of the guide have been circulated to all agencies.  A PDF version can be downloaded here.

As this is a subject where practice and technology will continue to develop, we will adapt the guidance to reflect changes in the future.  If you have any feedback or suggestions for additions/amendments, please get in touch with Maggie - This email address is being protected from spambots.
