  • Reunification is a process, not a destination
  • Practitioners need to start working on reunification from day 1
  • Partnering with the child, parents, carers and network is essential when working towards reunification
  • Use the dimensions of permanency as the foundation of case work focused on reunification
  • Concurrent case planning is part of the process
  • The Reunification Pyramid, the Reunification Practice Map and the Return Home from Care Practice Framework are models which can help shape the reunification practice.
