£2 million of support available for adoptive families

June 26th, 2014 in General

Over £2 million of new funding is being made available today to help adopted children settle into their new families by accessing crucial support services.

Ten councils across the country will use the new money to test drive the new Adoption Support Fund, giving families better access to essential therapy services as and when they need it. It will ensure children can benefit fully from being part of a family, develop a rich social life, a good education and a bright future.

They may have behavioural issues, eating disorders, several mental health needs, trust and attachment issues, substance abuse issues, and sadly in some cases, attempted suicide.
