It takes a village to raise a child, 27/06/12 [E/NI/S/W]

This report for Adoption UK on support for adoptive parents says that many adoptive families are not getting the support they need from the government or local authorities, and that current law regarding adoption pay and leave “sends out the message that adopters are `second-class parents’ and their children are `second-class children’”.

The report is the result of the first ever survey of adoptive parents’ experiences of adoption support, and comes as the government pushes to speed up the adoption process.

For full details see It takes a village to raise a child which is available from the Adoption UK website.
