Abstract: The purpose of the Adoption Guide and the Framework is to enable agencies and their professional workers to perform their key functions to an appropriate, explicit and consistent standard; to make explicit and transparent the process and the areas which potential adopters will be expected to engage in with the agency; to establish the range of checks which workers would be expected to undertake in respect of prospective adopters; to establish the decision-making process. Decision-making should encompass: if adoption is in the best interests of a particular child and if the applicants should be approved to adopt? Furthermore the question is the match between the child and the family suitable and appropriate?
