Liverpool City Council have now regionalised with other local authorities including Wirral, Sefton and Knowsley to become 'Adoption in Merseyside' (AiM) to provide a dedicated Adoption service in the Merseyside Region. Adoption in Merseyside is a newly formed shared service bringing together 4 Local Authority Adoption Teams and this is in line with the Department for Education regionalising adoption services throughout the UK.
