Detail

Scorecards were introduced as part of a new approach to address delays in the adoption system, as set out in ‘An action plan for adoption: tackling delay’. These scorecards allow local authorities and other adoption agencies to monitor their own performance and compare it with that of others.

Additional information has been included such as an indicator of the timeliness of the local family justice system and the numbers of older children being adopted, to aid effective comparison between local authority areas, and give a more contextualised and rounded picture of a local authority’s performance.
