This statutory guidance explains the content of the different sets of regulations made under the Adoption and Children Act 2002, and the duties and responsibilities that they place on adoption agencies. It applies to domestic adoption in England only and should be read by everyone involved in the adoption of children - especially children's social workers - and those who work with adopted adults and birth families.

This guidance is issued under section 7 of the Local Authority Social Services Act 1970, requiring local authorities in their social services functions to act under the general guidance of the Secretary of State.  As such, the document does not have the full force of statute, but should be complied with unless local circumstances indicate exceptional reasons which justify a variation.
