At Adoption Focus we have a number of groups to help you build your support network. If you're interested in attending any of these groups please contact us here.
Events and social activities
We hold two picnics each year in early summer and autumn to give our families a chance to meet up, relax and have fun together. We plan to host family outings during the summer at various venues across the regions, but this is funding dependent.
Our adopter committee meets three times a year and is instrumental in planning future topics of training, social gatherings and children’s events so that our services continue to meet our adoptive families’ evolving needs. We welcome new members so please do get in touch if you are interested.
We send out two newsletters each month with details of upcoming events and training opportunities, news, updates and links to useful information and resources. We’re keen to provide the content you need, so if there’s something you’d like to know more about or you have an idea to share with our adoptive community, let us know!
Reach Teen Group
Reach, our new group for young people whose lives have been impacted by adoption, will be launching in just a couple of weeks. Reach will enable adopted children age 11-18 to connect with one another and participate in fun activities, games and crafts and enjoy trips out, films and snacks in each other’s company. Any siblings in the age range are welcome to attend.
Play & Stay
These groups provide the opportunity for adopters to meet up in an informal setting and offer one another support. Different, fun activities are available for children, encouraging their social and emotional development and experienced social workers are to hand to offer advice and support.
