DfE announce changes to therapist regulations

The law requiring therapists to be registered with Ofsted to work with adult adoptees is to be scrapped ‘this Winter’.

The DfE launched a consultation on the proposed regulation changes for Adoption Support Agencies on 9 January 2023, and the consultation ran until 20 March 2023. As a result of the consultation, the DfE have proposed to amend the Adoption Support Services Regulations 2005 and the Adoption Agencies (Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 2005 to simplify arrangements for providers and increase accessibility of these support services.
