In Stockport we’re proud of our children’s services and our record on adoption.
Today’s Government figures show Stockport coming out best in Greater Manchester with 85%. We work with other authorities across Greater Manchester and the whole of the north west to attract foster carers – it can be a difficult area and there are always issues to be tackled.
It should also be noted that the time it takes to get a child fostered can be out of the hands of the local authority in some situations, for example when court delays play a factor.Leave a comment
