Adoption support

Family Futures is accepting referrals for Assessment and Treatment packages.

The Government has announced it is continuing with the policy of £2,500 per child as a capped rate for assessments. The ‘fair access limit’ for the Adoption Support Fund for treatment packages for 2018/2019 continues to be capped at £5,000 per child with costs above £5,000 match funded by local authorities.

Despite our hopes, the capped rate of £5,000 per child is not being increased.

Family Futures has taken this cap into consideration and has reflected this in the costs for Assessment and Treatment packages.

Family Futures is an ASF approved provider. The ASF will fund assessment and treatment programmes which are within the scope of the ASF regulations at the time.

Post adoption support

Parenting a child who has been placed for adoption can sometimes be more difficult than anticipated. We have learnt a great deal from adoptive parents, foster parents, special guardians and teachers about the difficulties they encounter. Family Futures offers a comprehensive treatment and training programme specifically designed to help support adoptive parents, foster parents, special guardians, professionals working with children and teachers that covers the following areas:

  • The child’s level of traumatisation
  • Their attachment difficulties
  • Any school related problems
  • Any health or developmental concerns
  • Parenting Workshops

This support is provided through:

Family Futures provides an integrated multi-disciplinary therapy service incorporating a variety of therapy techniques and practices including Child Psychiatry, Child Psychology, Child Psychotherapy, Theraplay and much more.  All our work is based on evidence from medical research, scientific study and clinical experience.  Watch this video to find out more…

Our staff have been trained by Bryan Post, Dan Hughes, Theraplay and other experts in the field in addition to their professional training. It is now a legal requirement that any organisation or individual offering adoption support services needs to be registered as an Adoption Support Agency (ASA) with Ofsted. It is worth checking this with the Ofsted website, where there is a list of registered providers.
