Measures to improve adoption and fostering

Adopting and fostering will become a faster and more efficient process thanks to new arrangements for approving carers, Children’s and Families Minister Edward Timpson has announced.

The Government is seeking views on measures that aim to allow foster carers to make everyday decisions about the children they look after, and cut unnecessary bureaucracy in the approval process to encourage more people to come forward to foster. They also set out to reduce the time it takes to adopt and make the whole process more user-friendly.

These measures should help fostering services recruit more people and support foster carers in providing a normal family environment for their foster children.

By speeding up the assessment process for adopters, the Government expects that more babies will be settled into adoptive families earlier in their lives.
