Closure of Adoption Service: Action for Children
Action for Children has made the difficult decision to close its Adoption Service. The decision follows an extensive review that has shown the service is no longer sustainable in light of lower numbers of placements and an increasingly tough economic climate. Whilst this announcement has been made today, Action for Children will continue to function as an Adoption Agency for a further 12-month period to ensure they support their existing families. Action for Children’s registered office for adoption is in Bristol so all historic records are likely to be transferred to Bristol City council over the course of the coming year.
