PrecisThis Act, is the result of an independent review of the Adoption Act 1988 being undertaken in 2014. It establishes optimal conditions for adoption to ensure past injustices are not carelessly repeated and that children’s rights, including their relationship rights, and their life-long welfare and best interests are at the forefront of all adoption proceedings.
The Act seeks to recognise the changing landscape in modern adoption practices and community attitudes about how families are constituted.
