Regional Adoption Agency pdf icon PDF 331 KB

The purpose of the report is to propose a model for the future delivery of some adoption related services through a Regional Adoption Agency (RAA) comprising Hampshire County Council, Isle of Wight Council, Portsmouth City Council and Southampton City Council.  The model seeks to build on the current good practice within each authority to improve performance further and deliver a more cohesive, efficient and effective service for some of our most vulnerable children and their families. The new RAA, to be known as Adopt South, will work with voluntary adoption agency partners and other key stakeholders to help shape the new service.

 

RECOMMENDED that Cabinet

a.         Approve the proposed model for delivery of adoption services through a Regional Adoption Agency, including the structural model set out at Appendix 1.

b.        Approve the financial contribution to the Regional Adoption Agency of £764,000, to be fixed for two years (2019/20 and 2020/21) and reviewed for 2021/22.

c.         Delegate authority to enter into the final interagency agreement to the Director of Children, Families and Education in consultation with the Lead Member for Children and Families.
