Rate of adopters added to Adoption Link drops for first time, while matches continue to rise. 

During the past quarter (July to September 2015) the number of approved adopters registering on Adoption Link dropped for the first time to 764, from a peak of 955 in the previous quarter. At the same time the number of children added (who are seeking adoption) increased to 341, from 270 in the previous quarter.

Foster carers are being pressured by local authorities into considering permanently caring for children through special guardianship orders (SGOs), a charity has warned. Fostering and adoption charity The Adolescent and Children’s Trust (Tact) has said it is concerned by the rapid increase in SGOs and wants the issue to be investigated to find out the reasons for it. Government statistics published this week show that the use of SGOs has soared in recent years.
