Implementation of the Lancashire and Blackpool Regional Adoption Agency
In May 2015, the government announced changes to the delivery of adoption services which required that, by April 2020, all adoption services would need to be delivered on a regional basis through Regional Adoption Agencies. The aim of this delivery model is to increase the number of children adopted, reduce the length of time children wait to be adopted and to improve post adoption support services to families who have adopted.
This is deemed to be a Key Decision and the provisions of Standing Order C19 have been complied with.
