Adoption Support – Family Therapy
85300000-2 – Social work and related services
Adoptive families face significant challenges. Many children entering adoptive placements have experienced past neglect and suffered trauma. Adoptive parents often experience self-doubt and feel hurt and rejected by the behaviour of their adopted children. The provision of family therapy plays a crucial role in helping children and their adoptive families to develop strong lasting relationships and attachments, therefore preventing adoption breakdowns. Cumbria County Council is commissioning this countywide service to ensure good outcomes for this vulnerable group of children and their adoptive families are achieved and to meet statutory requirements. This commissioned service shall be delivered alongside the work of the Adoption Support Team, ensuring an integrated service for adopted children and their families. Please refer to the ITT and Service Specification for full details. Any questions must be asked via The Chest. Please ensure that you complete and upload all of the required documents as listed in the ITT at 1.8 via The Chest by the deadline stated.
