A bipartisan group of MPs will form a new group aimed at reviving cross-party support to make the adoption process for parents faster and simpler.

The group, co-chaired by Liberal Senator Zed Seselja and the Labor senator Kimberley Kitching, will be launched at Parliament Louse on Monday by adoption advocate and actress, Adopt Change founder Deborrra-lee Furness.

Other members of the 21-strong group include the outgoing Labor MP Emma Husar, conservative senator Cory Bernardi, and Liberals Jonathan Duniam, David Bushby and Kevin Andrews.

Senator Seselja said he was pleased so many MPs were willing to work across party lines to further reform on the issue.

“We are forming the group to keep the issue of adoption and permanency on the agenda,” he told Fairfax Media.
