THE ALL-PARTY PARLIAMENTARY GROUP FOR ADOPTION AND PERMANENCE (APPGAP) WAS ESTABLISHED IN FEBRUARY 2019 AND AIMS TO:

Amplify the voices and experiences of children and families engaged in adoption and other forms of permanence, to inform parliamentarians and promote the development and implementation of effective policy and practice.

To provide an opportunity for the ambitious exploration of innovative solutions to enable adopted children and families to thrive.

APPGAP is chaired by Rachael Maskell, MP for York Central. Adoption UK provides the secretariat for the group in partnership with adoption and fostering charity, Home for Good.

Since April the group has been conducting an inquiry into future of the post-adoption support in England. The government is only committed to delivering the Adoption Support Fund until July 2020, with the availability of support beyond this date unclear.

The inquiry’s findings and recommendations are summarised in the group’s recent Investing in Families report: click the image below to download and read.
