Is early permanence the right thing for me? Expand The training, support and advice provided by the Triangle Project, together with Adoption Focus and St Francis' Children's Society, will help you to decide, and if during the training you decide that early permanence isn't for you, you will have the option to switch to conventional adoption. There is challenge, uncertainty and risk in all family life. The main concerns for most early permanence carers are the continuing contact with birth family members while plans for the child's future are confirmed and the possibility of the child being returned to the birth family. Early permanence carers who manage this well are those who understand that decisions made about the child's future are child-focused and right, and that early permanence placements properly support this process.
