ii) Registration of adoption support providers

Part of Adoption and Children Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at on 21 November 2001.

Alert me about debates like this

We welcome in theory the Bill's proposals to inspect and register the professional providers of adoption support so that standards are high and consistent. But we are concerned that this part of the Bill (Clause 8) will not hinder the development of many and various family groups that provide valuable help and support to thousands of adoptive families through peer-group discussion and social ties.
