This week the government launched a consultation proposing an extensive reform programme for adoption and fostering services with the aim of reducing unneccessary bureaucracy. At the same time the government has announced is is providing £8 million additional funding in 2012/2013 to help councils to implement the reform programme to improve adoption practice and adoption services in their area.
Whilst TACT welcomes the consultation reforms of the adoption system, we feel the funding to implement the reforms should only be calculated once the consultation process is completed and the need has been identified. It is not possible at this stage in the process to know whether the funding allocated is sufficient to implement the reforms over 350 councils.
