New support for adoptive parents

September 11, 2013 3:37 pm

The Government have announced that adoptive parents in England whose children need therapy will have access to a £19.3 million support fund from 2015. This funding will be aimed at helping children who may have suffered abuse and neglect. It follows calls from the children’s sector for more support for families to ensure that adoptions do not break down. The Lords Committee on Adoption Legislation said adopted children may have behavioural problems that were not resolved simply by being adopted. Peers found inadequate support risked adoption breakdown “and the possible return to care of an already damaged child”.
