Each Council will have its own rules in respect of allowable expenses.
Please can you list what expenses your Council's expenditure covers

Adopters can claim expenses for introductions. This varies and is assessed
based on the adopters circumstances and child's needs but can include
mileage costs, accommodation costs and initial setting up costs e.g.
purchase of car seat, cot and bedding.

Fourth, Post Adoption Support, (other than adoption allowances). What does
your Council's support consist of?

In terms of post adoption support outside of adoption allowances as
required by the adoption regulations 2005, we carry out an assessment of
need based on the assessment framework to assess what adoption support is
required. Provision of support is based on the specific needs identified
in the assessment and can range from therapeutic input to respite care
