Abstract: Based on a review of national statistics and UK-based quantitative research studies published since 2000, this paper summarises our research on the costs associated with adoption and post-adoption support for families who adopt children from care. 1 The cost of adoption from age 4 to age 16 was estimated, alongside the cost savings associated with three ‘what if’ policy scenarios. The main points from the literature review are identified, as well as the evidence gaps.
