During Education questions on the 15th June 2015 Steve McCabe asked Education Minister, Edward Timpson for an assurance that smaller voluntary adoption agencies would not be unfavourably impacted on by his department’s new adoption proposals.


Small adoption agencies often specialise in finding families for harder-to-place children. Steve pointed out that the government say these proposals are designed to help this particular group.


The Minister agreed that these agencies play an important role and he would ensure that they are fully part of the new adoption landscape and would be central to his vision going forward.
