Core Assets Consultancy and Resourcing in partnership with the British Association of Adoption and Fostering (BAAF) has been awarded preferred provider status by the Children’s Improvement Board (CIB) for the diagnostic assessment of local authority adoption services.
The call-off contract commissioned by the CIB
