Type: Report

This is the first in a series of reports relating to our evaluation of the Adoption Support Fund (ASF) 2018-2021. It provides early findings on the experiences and views of a range of local authority and provider stakeholders of the Adoption Support Fund, captured through one to one interviews undertaken between November 2018 and March 2019 and an online survey undertaken between April and June 2019.

More about the experiences and views of local authorities, RAAs and providers will be provided in subsequent reports, alongside information about the impact of the Fund from the perspective of parents and carers, to be published in 2020 and 2021.
