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.

 

Please note that due to the current advice regarding social distancing our training will be delivered digitally until further notice.

 

Friends & Family Workshop, 24th October, 3rd November, 21st November, 9th December

  
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.

 

Life Story Work Forum, 9th November

 
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 the two hour session.

 

Sibling Workshop, 8th December

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.

 

Existing Children in the Family Workshop, 8th December

Adoption Focus offers a workshop 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. It also offers them useful tools and strategies to help prepare the existing child and has a young person’s personal experience of when her siblings joined the family.
