Family Futures’ response to Daily Mail articlePosted in: News
We welcome the debate the Daily Mail article has stimulated. The article could have done without the sensationalism, however the points made are valid. Family Futures is pleased that the government for the first time has really begun to address this issue with the Adoption Support Fund, as guaranteed post adoption support funding is the only thing that will make adoption sustainable and attractive to would be adoptive parents. Currently though we don’t think the formula is quite right and the level of demand has been underestimated. We hope that government funding will be sustained and enhanced to ensure a realistic post adoption package for all is put in place.
