Friends & Family, 17th November

The half-day workshop is provided for friends, family and other members of adopters' support network. It will raise their awareness and understanding of the adoption process, the needs of adopted children and how they can offer the most effective help and support to their friends or relatives on their way to becoming adoptive parents.

Understanding Children's Behaviour, 4th December

This therapeutic workshop offers adoptive parents the opportunity to explore what behaviours their children are presenting with in a safe and empathic environment. The aim is to learn more about why they may present with certain behaviours.

Tailored to meet the needs of each family, we offer one-to-one support with an experienced worker to enable adopters to talk about confidential and personal issues. Advice about appropriate tools, techniques and strategies are available during each two-hour session.
