The End of the Assessment Process
Regulations concerning taxation, benefits and National Insurance change frequently. Whilst we make every effort for this page to be up-to-date please confirm this information on the relevent government web sites.
Part 5 is a summary of the whole form.
Your agency social worker will be asked to detail how you relate to children, and how well you will work with the agency, the birth parents, and other significant adults. What are your strengths and weaknesses, and in what areas might you experience difficulties?
What are the agency social worker's recommendations?
Finally, are there any points of disagreement between you and the agency social worker?
You and the social worker upon completion will then sign the form.
Please try to remember
The assessment process is not solely about establishing if you are "suitable adopters". It is just as much concerned with providing you with information. The more information you are given, the better equipped you will be to decide whether or not adoption is the right choice for you.
