Aisha Nanko aged 7

Adoption agency file components

Background

Aisha has been known to social services since birth. Both her parents have longstanding mental health difficulties. The family was provided with an intensive package of family support, including day care, and planned and unplanned respite care.

Despite all the support provided concerns remained about Aisha's welfare and the local authority applied and was granted a care order with respect to Aisha eight months ago.

For the last six months Aisha has been placed with prospective adopters, Mr and Mrs Harkishin, although her parents are opposed to this plan and would like Aisha returned to their care.

What information should be kept on Aisha's adoption file?
