Local authorities and their partners in the North East are working together to try and improve adoption services for all children and their families, by developing plans for a regional adoption agency (RAA) that would work across the five local authorities. The local authorities included within Adopt North East RAA are Newcastle, South and North Tyneside, Gateshead and Northumberland. This constitutes an exciting opportunity to make significant changes to the way services are currently provided.
Consultation will now take place with adopted people (aged 18 years plus), which will look to further understand the key issues and provide further learning, development of service provision within the adoption arena in future. This consultation process will allow those involved to give their views and feedback via an online survey as well as an evening consultation event. All feedback will be anonymised.
To complete the survey or if you would like to attend the adopted adult’s consultation event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 0191 438 7980 for further information or to request a space.
