Together for adoption is a new regional agency that integrates five local authorities – Cheshire West and Chester, Halton, St Helens, Warrington and Wigan.
In 2015 the government announced changes to the service, proposing that all adoption services should be delivered on a regional basis by 2020. New agencies, like Together for adoption, are aiming to:
- Increase the number of children adopted
- Reduce the length of time children wait to be adopted
- Improve post adoption support services to families who have adopted
- Reduce the number of adoption agencies to improve efficiency and effectiveness.
