Welsh Government wants your views on amendments to 3 adoption and fostering regulations.
The COVID 19 crisis has affected the way we work in all sectors and the processes that are followed have been transformed swiftly where necessary, to ensure services can continue to deliver to the citizens of Wales. Both the adoption and fostering sectors have responded rapidly and innovatively by introducing measures to ensure continuation of vital services to children, young people, and families. This includes considering the needs and support of staff, foster carers and children and young people in their care to enable them to feel reassured and safe during
Welsh Government officials have been in constant dialogue with both the adoption and fostering sectors to establish any potential problems that could impede the sectors from delivering services and which could prevent children, young people and families from accessing the vital support services they need.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, concern was raised by stakeholders on the ability to comply with some of the requirements outlined in two sets of Regulations and which therefore signified the potential of disrupting the flow of service delivery within both the adoption and fostering sectors.
The consultation is available on the Welsh Government website until 24th August 2020.
