We want your views on amendments to the Adoption Agencies (Wales) Regulations 2005
We are proposing:
- to establish a two-stage process for the assessment and approval of prospective adopters
- to reduce the time in which adoption agencies must refer details of prospective adopters and of children to be placed for adoption to the Adoption Register for Wales
- to enable ‘authorised officers’ to witness the consent of a parent or guardian to placement or adoption orders, where the parent or guardian lives outside of England and Wales
During the consultation period we will be holding information events:
- 6 November in Cardiff
- 8 November in Wrexham
