Dozens of children have smoother adoption thanks to unique Sheffield scheme
With the focus on relationships in Mental Health Week, NHS England has put the spotlight on Sheffield where they are helping nurture relationships between adopters, foster carers and children to improve their adoption outcomes and mental health.
Almost 50 adopted children have had a smoother transition to their new homes thanks to a fresh £85,000 scheme in Sheffield helping assess and support their mental health needs.
The Pre-Adoption Service, run by Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, hosted a successful unique year-long trial to reduce the number of failed adoptions and children needing mental health services in the future.
