Adoption

Adoption support

Anyone affected by adoption has the right to request an assessment of adoption support.

The Adoption and Children (Scotland) Act 2007 places a duty on local authorities to undertake such an assessment and to consider supports that may be required.

Adoption support will be available to you.  This could take the form of individual and/or group support and would be determined following an assessment of your needs.

At the point of a child being placed with you, an adoption support plan will have been completed - this will highlight areas of need and any support required to meet those needs.  It is recognised that those needs will change over time and that ongoing support may be required to meet those needs.
