Placements privacy notice

The Placements team identifies placements (such as foster care) for children that come into the care of the council. Our work is directed by the council’s social care teams and our team works closely with all teams across the service in social care. Barnet is a member of the North London Fostering Consortium, where six local authorities work together on appropriate placements for children in local authority care.
