Adoption is ‘Challenging’ for all involved
Thousands of adoptive families are now accessing essential therapy services to help their children close the door on previous traumatic experiences & settle into their new life - backed by £7m of government investment.  And to make sure families get the support they need, when they need it, the government just unveiled a new coalition of adoption champions, who will advise - and challenge - ministers on how help & support for families can be improved.
