Additional £1 million announced for Adoption Support Fund

Fair access limits will remain as at present until March 2020

In recent months, CoramBAAF has been engaging the adoption and fostering sector on options for fair access limits to the Adoption Support Fund. The Minister of State for Children and Families, Robert Goodwill MP, has now announced an additional £1 million for the ASF this financial year and that fair access limits will remain as they currently are till the end of March 2020.

The Minister's letter to directors of children's services noted that a recently published evaluation of the ASF had found that 84 per cent of parents believed that the Fund had helped their child.
