Social standards launched to better safeguard adopted children

The first set of Regulatory Social Standards has been launched by the Social Care Standards Authority, SCSA. The main aim of these standards is for the better safeguarding of children’s rights. There are presently four countries from which children may be adopted, these being Bulgaria, India, Slovakia and Portugal.

38 adoptions were carried out this year between January and September, 34 from India and four from Slovakia.

Minister Michael Falzon explained that the Authority will be safeguarding and ensuring that these services are being provided to the highest standards, thus raising the quality level of the service offered to prospective parents who choose to adopt.

Anyone going for this option will be given 10,000 euro in assistance by Government.
