Adoption Support Fund

Adoption Support Fund

The Department for Education fully appreciates that families and the sector will have queries about the Adoption Support Fund given the current Coronavirus situation.

On 10 April 2020, the Department announced a temporary scheme to enable RAA and LA adoption teams to access ASF funding to provide ASF eligible families with immediate therapeutic support arising from the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.

The Fund is continuing to operate as usual for individual child/family level applications within scope of the Fund. The Department has issued these frequently asked questions for these applications, which they hope you will find useful.
