Response for all questions

In relation to our "full policy and procedure" Clackmannanshire Council
are currently in the process of implementing new P&P around kinship care,
which takes account of the significant developmental work we are doing in
relation to kinship care..  These draft procedures are with Senior
Management awaiting "sign off", We would be unable to share these, whilst
we make final amendments and adjustments, pending agreement and
implementation.

 

Yours sincerely
