Regional Adoption Agency

An exciting initiative is looking to bring a number of authorities, national adoption agencies and voluntary adoption agencies together to form a first class Regional Adoption Agency. 

There has been an unprecedented period of reform to Adoption Services, with the intention of reducing delay for children being placed with their permanent families and ensuring that adopters are approved more quickly and supported more effectively.

As a response to the Government agenda and to improve what we currently do, an independent analysis of activity, risks and benefits was undertaken, with the outcome being that establishing Regional Adoption Agency will best serve prospective adopters.

Updates will follow here in the coming months, to explain exactly what this means for anyone considering adoption in the future.
