As part of our commitment to offering long-term, outstanding adoption support to everyone who adopts with us, we have a continuous programme of training and events available for our adopters. Here's a sample of what's coming up in the next few weeks:

 

Teens & Tweens Group, 7th December

Theses group offers children and young people the opportunity to have fun taking part in activities, make new friends, develop social skills and confidence and contribute towards the development of our services for young people by sharing their experiences.

  

Friends & Family Workshop, 25th January

This session is specifically designed for friends, family and any other significant people within an adopter’s or prospective adopter’s support network. The half day workshop 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.

 

Existing Children Workshop, 28th January

This workshop is provided to prospective adopters who have existing children (birth, adopted, step-children) in the family. The aim of this workshop is to help prospective adopters to understand how their children will be involved in the adoption process.

 

Siblings Workshop, 28th January

This workshop explores sibling placements, helping you to consider meeting the needs of more than one child. The session also focuses on key issues to consider for siblings, placing this within the context of adoption, and highlighting strategies for managing anticipated difficulties.
