Out of borough placements: looked after children

Service information

Services available to Looked After Children placed in Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council by other Local Authorities

There are a number of looked after children placed in Blackburn with Darwen by other local authorities.  Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council would like to advise you about the resources and facilities available for looked after children and young people who may be placed in Blackburn with Darwen by your local authority.

Within the attached information we set out the process to notify us when a looked after child or young person is placed in Blackburn with Darwen or when their placement arrangements change.

Please disseminate this information to relevant professionals within your Children’s Social Care Service. We hope that this information will help your professional staff to understand and access services that are available to children and young people residing in Blackburn with Darwen. It would be helpful if you passed this information on to any of your foster carers based in Blackburn with Darwen so they are aware of the services available to children and young people within the Borough.

If you currently have children and young people placed in Blackburn with Darwen, it would be useful if you could complete the attached proforma with the details of the young person and attach the current care plan. This will enable us to update our records accordingly.

Equally, it would be useful to receive similar information and contact details about services and opportunities available to any of or looked after children that we may have placed in your local authority area. Thank you to those Directors who have already provided information about their Local Authorities.
