Eileen Fursland


I am a writer based in the UK and I write books, articles and training courses about issues affecting children and young people, particularly adoption and fostering.

I have written widely about the implications of social networking for adoption and fostering. I wrote the first book on this subject to be published in the UK, Facing up to Facebook: A Survival Guide for Adoptive Parents, which was published by the British Association for Adoption and Fostering and was voted one of the 10 best parenting books by The Independent newspaper in 2011.

I provide training on this important issue for local authority and voluntary adoption agencies and other adoption support organisations. My speaking engagements and training workshops include events in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Eire, Italy and Belgium.
