WWiSH adoption service

New adoption agency on its way

Together for adoption is a new regional agency that integrates five local authorities – Cheshire West and Chester, Halton, St Helens, Warrington and Wigan.

In 2015 the government announced changes to the service, proposing that all adoption services should be delivered on a regional basis by 2020. New agencies, like Together for adoption, are aiming to:

  • Increase the number of children adopted
  • Reduce the length of time children wait to be adopted
  • Improve post adoption support services to families who have adopted
  • Reduce the number of adoption agencies to improve efficiency and effectiveness.

Together for adoption will be fully launched by 1st September 2017, with brand new office locations, a new website, enquiry telephone number and email system in place.
