If your child is in local authority care or the local authority is thinking of placing your child in care you may be feeling angry, upset and confused. If concurrent planning (or concurrency) has been mentioned or Fostering for Adoption as the type of care plan the local authority is considering for your child you may want to understand more about what is being considered.


Both concurrency and Fostering for Adoption are ways of trying to ensure that your child’s care is as stable as possible and that they reach their permanent home as quickly as possible. Achieving permanence for a child is a key consideration for your child’s wellbeing from the point they enter care.
