Minutes:

Councillor Laura Mayes presented the report which provided a year-end report to Cabinet regarding the performance of the Adoption Service within Wiltshire Council. This was also a requirement of the condition of registration as described in 2014 Adoption Minimum Standards and 2013 Statutory Guidance that Cabinet is satisfied that the Adoption Agency complies with the conditions of registration, is effective and is achieving good outcomes for children.

 

Councillor Jon Hubbard, Chairman of the Children’s Select Committee, stated that he recognised that some of the statistics that compared less favourably to national average were a reflection of the fact that the Council was continuing to do the right thing by seeking potential adoption for more difficult placements.

 

Resolved

 

That the contents of the report be noted and accepted.

 

Reason for Decision

 

Wiltshire Council is an Adoption Agency registered with Ofsted. The 2014 Adoption Minimum Standards (25.6) and 2013 Statutory Guidance (3.93 and 5.39) describe the information that is required to be reported to the executive side of the local authority every six months in order to provide assurance that the adoption agency is complying with the conditions of registration whilst being effective and achieving good outcomes for children and service users.
