    The Surrey Adoption Service Annual Report (2018/19) and Statement of Purpose seek to provide members with a review of adoption services in Surrey for 2018/19,  including information as to the key issues for the Service and statistical data regarding the Service’s performance in key areas including:


    • Timeliness of adoption for children with an adoption plan
    • Surrey’s performance based on the Department of Education’s Scorecard
    • Recruitment of adopters
    • Post order support for Surrey adoptive families


    This annual review will be the last before the Adoption Services of Surrey, Brighton and Hove, West Sussex and East Sussex Councils all join together to become Adoption South East, a Regional Adoption Agency, a unified entity hosted by East Sussex that will oversee adoption services for the South East region.
