About Us

Mott MacDonald Support

From 1st May 2015, the ASF is accessible to all 152 Local Authorities in England to submit applications for funding through our online digital solution. Mott MacDonald will continue to work with the Department for Education to administer the Fund and provide support to all Local Authorities.

Mott MacDonald was appointed by the Department for Education in December 2013 to create and test the delivery systems for the ASF with 13 Local Authorities. Since then, we have worked with the Local Authorities during this prototype phase and focussed on identifying the needs of adoptive families, refining the fund criteria and making the application process as straightforward as possible.
