Adoption Support Fund – Parents’ Newsletter

Posted on: 1 March 2016

The Adoption Support Fund (ASF) was launched by the Department for Education on 1 May 2015. £19 million was set aside to help adopters in England whose children need therapeutic interventions and support.  Have you accessed therapeutic support through the Adoption Support Fund?

This newsletter for parents aims to help you understand your rights, what you can expect from your local authority and what the fund can pay for.

A recent announcement has made it clear that the ASF will continue beyond March 2016 – helping providers and parents plan ahead for future needs.
