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:

 

Friends & Family Workshop, 12th March

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.

Siblings & Existing Children Workshops, 26th March

This Siblings workshop explores sibling placements, helping you to consider meeting the needs of more than one child. The aim of the Existing Children workshop is to help prospective adopters to understand how their children will be involved in the adoption process. Adopters/prospective adopters are free to attend either or both of these workshops which run either side of lunch.

Friends & Family Workshop, 6th April

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, 29th April

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.
