The future of the Adoption Support Fund – please share your viewsPosted in: News
Inquiry into ASF invites responses from adoptees, adopters, social workers, agencies, LAs & support providers
The new All-Party Parliamentary Group for Adoption and Permanence has set up an inquiry to consider the future of the Adoption Support Fund (ASF), examining the role it has played in supporting children and families engaged in adoption and special guardianship arrangements.
The inquiry will focus on:
- the accessibility of the ASF, including timings and the application process
- types of support accessed and gaps in support provision
- long and short-term impacts of support accessed through the fund
The group will examine evidence presented covering these areas and make recommendations to Government around the future of post adoption support.
Please share your views via this survey link which also includes a separate survey for young people to complete. The inquiry is inviting responses from adoptees, adopters, social workers, agencies, LAs & support providers (deadline 24 April at 12pm).
