The Adoption and Fostering Podcast

Episode 139 - Bits, bobs, Annual Appraisals and Bantz

June 4, 2022

As we march into June we thought we'd have a little palette cleanser before we get into what is likely to be a full on schedule through June with us speaking to Josh McAllister from the Care Review and the Children's Minster Will Quince. We catch up on the start of school holidays for Scott and family, a few thoughts on the recently released Care Review (though we're keeping our powder dry on that one) and some of the other news that's been floating around. Unusually, Al shares how and why he became a social worker and the surprising upshot of his annual traumatic appraisal. 

True to form we totally forgot it was pride months so didn't even mention it. Finally, we give the worst advert in the world to the IAC conference as we were asked to mention it, details here

As always if you’ve experience of adoption, Fostering or special guardianship from any perspective and would like share that on the podcast please get in touch through the Facebook or twitter page or email us at
