In addition to pay-as- you- go services, we offer 2 packages of support for local authorities, Gold and Silver package depending on how many adopters you have and budget available.   

Gold package is designed for larger local authorities or groups of local authorities (possibly geographically close) who wish to work together to support many adoptive families.  This package offers you the opportunity to tailor support to the needs of your families, it can promote the development of support networks between families and gives a clear demonstration of what you are doing to support your adopters. There is flexibility within the package to adapt to your needs if they change throughout the year.
