This service is commissioned by Enfield Council on behalf of The North London Adoption and Fostering Consortium to provide an adoption support counselling service across these 6 London boroughs, Barnet, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Camden and Islington.

 

The overall aim of this service is to provide short-term independent adoption advice, counselling and consultation service to the six member Local Authorities of the North London Adoption and Fostering Consortium.

 

The service should:

 

·         Provide short-term independent advice and guidance in order to  support adoptive families, children (placed or adoptive), birth families (both where the Local Authority is considering adoption as the care plan for a looked after child and after a child has been adopted), adopted adults, Special Guardians, social work staff and foster carers for children where there is a permanency arrangement.

 

·         Refer service users on to an appropriate longer term support service where appropriate.

 

·         Provide support and advice on best practice regarding permanency to other agencies and professionals who use with the service.

 

·        Provide services in a non-judgemental manner that is sensitive to diversity in all forms.

 

 

 

It will do this by providing:

 

·         Counselling, advice and advocacy

 

·         Accurate information in an accessible format about matters pertaining to adoption.

 

·         Signposting to other relevant organisations.
