Dean Juster, Director of Safeguarding for The Salvation Army, said: “We sincerely sympathise with what for many people are painful memories of adoption regulations and experiences during the post-war period until the mid-1970s. At that time we were one of a number of churches, charities and social agencies working in partnership with social services and health services. We provided the residential unit for mothers and babies but the adoptions were usually arranged by other organisations with The Salvation Army liaising between them and the mother.
“We are concerned by the new cap to benefit allowance and its possible negative effects on people who are vulnerable."
