Adoption Support Fund (ASF)

On 24th January 2013, the Department for Education (DfE) published their report ‘Further Action on Adoption: Finding more loving homes’, setting out their proposals to attract adopters and improve the support available to adoptive families. This led to the implementation of the Prototype Adoption Support Fund in December 2013 which has been working with ten Local Authorities to generate sustainable improvement to the assessment and provision of appropriate therapeutic support to adoptive families.
Now with a simplified application process and refined funding criteria the Adoption Support Fund was opened to all 152 Local Authorities in England on 1st May 2015. Parents and Local Authorities are encouraged to make applications for funding to provide post-adoption therapeutic support.
