Latest news and information from the East Midlands Regional Adoption Agency development project

Regional Adoption Agencies

In 2015 the Government announced plans to establish Regional Adoption Agencies (RAAs) across the country. since then agencies in the East Midlands have been working together to develop an RAA with the aim of improving outcomes for children and families. 

On this page we will keep you up to date with our plans for an East Midlands RAA as they develop. Eight LAAAs and three VAAs in the East Midlands are working together and have been working with all those with an interest in adoption to help decide what model for an RAA best meets local need.

You can find out more about the continuing development of the RAA in our Frequently Asked Questions.

The DfE has also published information on the RAA programme here, which you may find interesting.
