If you're an adopter, no matter how long you've had your child, it is really important to contact your local authority for an Assessment of Adoption Support Needs so that you can access the new Adoption Support Fund which has come into operation today.
The funding is only guaranteed for one year, so it's essential we access it as soon as possible.
Even if you don't think your child has any additional needs - still apply. Once the adoption support assessment has been done you may find you can access therapies, clinical assessments and other support that you weren't aware of.
The money is there for our adopted children to be supported in any way they need!
