Following the Government’s advice about how best to respond to the Coronavirus outbreak, Scotland’s Adoption Register staff are now working from home. We can still be reached in all the usual ways for advice and support, with our phone lines open Monday-Friday 9-5pm. The Online Register continues to be fully accessible to agencies, and to prospective adopters who have registered.
Inevitably the usual work to progress plans for children and families has been severely disrupted by the crisis, but the Register will do all it can to support the agencies, adopters and carers involved so that plans are able to progress as soon as it is safe and practicable for this to happen. Please get in touch if you want advice in relation to your circumstances or in relation to a particular child or family.
