'This book should be required reading for all those who are working with children in care and who are involved in the processes of assessing and determining the most appropriate placements for children, including local authority and independant social workers, guardians and psychologists. It has valuable messages for policy makers and academics.'

- Seen and Heard

'This book highlights the need for a national policy and practice framework, building on good practice around the country when it comes to assessing and supporting kinship carers. It is a valuable source of statistical evidence, case studies and personal perspectives. I would recommend it for social workers, policy makers and everyone working with or for children in care.'
