Once you become an adoptive parent, if an assessment of need identifies that therapeutic support is appropriate, this can accessed through the Adoption Support Fund.
The adoption support fund (ASF) provides funds to local authorities (LAs) and regional adoption agencies (RAAs) to pay for essential therapeutic services for eligible families.
Adoption Support Workers can also help you access other specialist services, such as Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services. This includes NHS commissioned health services to meet the needs of adopted children.
