Evaluation of the Adoption Support Fund for the Department for Education (DfE)

IPC has been commissioned by the Department for Education to undertake an evaluation of the Adoption Support Fund (ASF) including in particular its impact on:

  • Children and families receiving ASF-funded therapeutic support
  • The practice of and commissioning by agencies such as local authorities and Regional Adoption Agencies
