Understanding the experiences of Muslim children and young people in care: Webinar
This webinar will be delivered using Livestorm.
Muslim children are among those that wait the longest to be fostered and adopted. At the same time, inadequate numbers of Muslim foster carers and adopters are coming forward. Until recently, little was known about the reasons for this, and the experiences of Muslims in care or those seeking to foster and adopt.
This webinar will share messages from Department for Education funded research including:
- What you need to know about Islam to practice confidently and effectively with Muslim communities.
- The experiences of Muslim carers, recruiters and social workers engaged with Muslim communities.
- Reasons for low rates of adoption and foster care within Muslim communities.
- How child and family support services can engage with Islam – and faith in general – in order to recruit Muslim carers.
- How child and family support workers can engage with Islam – and faith in general – in order to meet children's needs.
- An invitation to be curious about Islam and faith, and ask the questions you need to ask.
