Maintaining Contact between Parents and Children in the Public Care.
Masson, Judith
Children & Society, v11 n4 p222-30 Dec 1997
Children in out-of-home care risk losing contact with parents and others despite emphasis of the Children Act 1989. Contact is lower for children in foster care and as family support diminishes. Contact after adoption increases as methods of indirect contact developed by adoption agencies are implemented; lost contact for all children can be restored with social work support. (EV)
