Statistics, Annual Reports & Independent Review

Independent Review

We are delighted that the final report of the Independent Review of Scotland’s Adoption Register has now been published: available here and the summary document here. The purpose of the Review was to take stock of the progress made by the Register since its introduction, consider how well it is currently working and to explore ideas for its future development. The comprehensive analysis of the service and the positive findings from the Review are very welcome. The report itself is a great resource for the Register and for all agencies and practitioners seeking to improve the way we find adoptive families for children.

Annual Report

The Annual report from 1st April 2018-31st March 2019 has now been published and can be accessed here: Annual Report-18-19

As always, comments and suggestions about how the Register can continue to improve are more than welcome.
