Family and friends


Caerphilly Family and Friends Team are dedicated to working with children and their families, where they have been made subject to a Care Order, a Special Guardianship Order or a Supervision Order and their plan is to remain living with a family member long term.

This could be their parent who they live with under the Placement of a Child in Care with a Parent Regulations, or a relative or a friend who has been subject to a connected persons assessment.

The team was formed with the purpose of reducing the number of children who are Looked After. We work with families using a strength-based approach.

We provide support to families who care for children under a Special Guardianship Order and make applications to the court to discharge Care Orders or to convert Care Orders to Special Guardianship Orders.
