Support before and after Adoption Order
Hi everyone, I have a date now for a court hearing for the AO next month but LO has regressed somewhat behaviour-wise of late and I am concerned that we may need more support (we don't have any particularly at the moment except social worker visits). I have seen various forums and been given advice from two adopters that I shouldn't go through with the AO as I will have even less chance of help if I do. Can anyone tell me if this is true? My social worker is adamant that this is not the case, and that each child is entitled to £3k a year from the Adoption Support Fund whether they are still under a Placement Order or the AO has been passed. Could anyone advise please? Thank you very much for your help.
