Government announces transitionary funding of ASF

  • Date:

‘The Department have announced that interim arrangements have been agreed for the continuation of the Adoption Support Fund when the current ASGS funding arrangements expires as the current public spending agreement come to an end. Until the new public spending agreement is made, the agreed arrangements will allow 9 months of funding for interventions with possible extension when the agreement is made. Further explanation of how this funding will be implemented can be found in the ASF Transitionary Funding FAQs

The significant uncertainty over the future of the fund has now been addressed for the immediate future. For the Department of Education to prioritise this important issue is to be welcomed given the many other uncertainties that preoccupy the sector.’
