Details

These scorecards allow local authorities and other adoption agencies to monitor and compare their performance.

We introduced scorecards as part of a new approach to address delays in the adoption system. This approach was set out in ‘An action plan for adoption: tackling delay.’

More information about the scorecards and underlying data is available in the methodology and guidance documents.
