Referrals for our ASF service can be made by the child’s Local Authority. The Link offers
a multidisciplinary approach where the views of professionals involved and all family members are taken into account. Once a referral is received by our team, and we are the most appropriate
service to provide support, Information is sought around family structure, history and presenting problems post adoption. A proposal is then drawn up in partnership with the therapist, the Local
Authority and the family as to the most relevant form of support. Recommendations along with costings to are submitted to the Adoption Support Fund by the Local Authority and once funding
approval is received, work can begin!
