COVID-19 Adoption Support Fund scheme announced

Posted in: News

See our new Covid-19 Emergency Support treatment packages here.

The government announced on 10 April a widening of the scope of support covered by the ASF for adoptive families. The COVID-19 Adoption Support Fund will be available “to pay for different types of therapeutic support for families whose adopted children may have already suffered trauma and be made more anxious owing to the uncertainty of the effects of the virus.”

£8 million of adoption support funding will be made available to help adoptive families across England, recognising the “greater stress due to children with attachment and trauma needs being isolated at home and having their routine disrupted, which can lead to an increase in adoption breakdown and child to parent violence.”

Family Futures is open and running our assessment and therapeutic treatment services through secure, digital platforms. We are also accepting new referrals.
