National Adoption Leadership Board –
November 2014
Concern about significant reduction in applications for
Placement Orders in last 12 months against a trend in
previous years towards an increase
Impact of appeal cases - Re:B, Re:BS
Courts finding that assessments of families/connected
carers as potential carers insufficiently robust
4
Key messages
Courts need high quality, evidence based analysis of all
realistic options for children
Must consider all realistic alternatives to adoption but
courts don’t require in-depth analysis of unrealistic
options
Keep the balance between fairness versus the impact of
delay for children
5
Key messages
Adoption is the ‘last resort’ but doesn’t mean it’s not the
necessary option to provide permanent care for children
26 week timescale does not apply to Placement Orders
but should plan as early as possible
The test for adoption remains the same, and care plans
for children remain based on their best interests and
welfare
