Government issues new adoption support guidance

The government has issued a new consultation document on the
provision of effective adoption support.

The document will form the basis for new regulations on adoption
support to be introduced under the Adoption and Children Bill in
April next year.

Health minister Jacqui Smith said: “We know that at the moment
the provision of adoption services across the country is patchy and

“Better more comprehensive support will help to improve the
success of adoptive placements,” she said.

The document ‘Providing Effective Adoption Support’ is available
