Adoption Support Fund

Since its launch in May 2015, the Adoption Support Fund (ASF) has approved over 5,800 applications for therapeutic support to families and children, with an average funding level of nearly £5,000 per application.  Over 8,000 families and 8,800 children have benefitted from the funding.

Since the extension of the scope of the Fund in April 2016, it has supported over 55 special guardianship orders and 14 inter-country adoption applications, covering 79 families and 87 children.

To read more about the experience of families and children who have received support and the difference it is making to their lives, please access the report (‘The adoption support fund – the first year’) on the Adoption UK website.
