Groups

 

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 events each year in early summer and autumn to give our families a chance to meet up, relax and have fun together.

Adopter Committee

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.

Focus on the Fellas

This group is open to fathers who have already adopted and those who are in Stage Two or beyond. Chat over a coffee about the rewards and challenges of parenting an adopted child.  Come along and meet adoptive dads who have already been through assessment and approval to adoptive fatherhood. 

Newsletter

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!

Teenagers Group

This group brings teenagers together as a means of support, meeting six times a year. It offers young people the opportunity to come together to have fun, discuss issues, make new friends, develop social skills, confidence and shape our services for young people. We are very keen to invite existing children to join this group alongside their adopted siblings.

Tweens Group

Our newest group, for children aged 8-12 years. Tween group sees adopted children and their siblings getting together regularly and taking part in a variety of activities, games and sports with the enthusiastic supervision of our fantastic adoption support team.

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.
