The National Adoption Service for Wales has today (17 July) published their Annual Report which shows improvements made to adoption services in Wales.
Despite a rise in waiting children, the report focuses on the need to recruit more adopters and to continue improve adoption support.
In 2017/18, more than 300 children were placed in their adoptive home and circa 300 had their adoption order granted.
There was a further improvement in the average time children wait prior to placement for adoption; on average 14.5 months after becoming looked after and 7.9 months after the authority to place is granted. See full report - https://adoptcymru.com/news/annual-report-2017-18
