SSAFA successfully secured a grant from the Department for Education, Practice and Improvement Fund, to deliver the Military Adoption Champion (MAC) Project. The Practice & Improvement Fund aims to inspire the transformation of adoption services and those services that adopted children and families rely on at a regional and national level. Through this funding the Department for Education is seeking to strengthen services and spread practice that will make a real difference to adoptive families.
