Inter Agency Fees

The interagency fee is a nationally agreed mechanism for covering the costs incurred in the preparation, approval and matching of prospective adopters, and the support provided during the first 12 months of a placement. It is currently set at £27,000 for the placement of a single child, with additional rates for the placement of sibling groups. This is set at the same level across all VAAs in the UK and all local authorities in England, Scotland and Wales.
