Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,

I am undertaking research about children who are placed for adoption by local authorities for whom adoption applications are not made within a year of the child being placed with the prospective adoptive parents.

If there are any children in the care of your local authority that have been placed with prospective adoptive parents for over a year for whom the adopters have not submitted an adoption application please can you let me know

How many of these children have been in placement for over 12 but less than 24 months.
How many of these children have been in placement for over 24 but less than 36 months.
How many of these children have been in placement for over 36 months.

Yours faithfully,

Katie Brind

InfoMgr, FinDMT, Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council
