Cheshire East give green light for new adoption scheme

First published in News

CHESHIRE East Council has given the green light to allow people who have been approved to adopt, to search the Adoption Register for the first time.

The council has been specially selected to pilot the scheme which will allow approved adopters to learn more about the children who are waiting for a loving, stable home.

Edward Timpson, Minister for Children and Families, who has two adopted brothers, said: “Allowing parents in Cheshire East who are approved to adopt to see videos and pictures, to hear the children speak and laugh, while keeping in place the strictest safeguards, will give them a greater role in the process.”

Approved adopters will be able to view video footage from September and will be able to find out about the children’s hobbies and likes and dislikes.
