One-to-one support

Making connections

Through our Helpline, online forums, Support Groups, and other special social and training events we can help you build links with other adoptive families, both in your area and elsewhere in the UK.

Talking about your experiences, concerns or problems with other parents who truly understand your situation can make a huge difference.

Access specialist support

Whether you are a prospective adopter with a query about the approval process or an adoptive parent who is worried about your child’s behaviour, our Helpline Advisers are your first point of call for information and resources.

Our Family Support Service can be accessed by just one phone call. It supports prospective adopters and adoptive parents. It has three levels of support and is available to both members and non-members.

Support Groups

Run by a team of Volunteer Coordinators, you'll find our support groups across the UK. Groups are friendly and welcoming, open to all of our UK members, whether you adopted ten years ago, or are in the process now.

Each group is unique, offering opportunities to meet, share support and build friendships with other adopters in your area. Find out more about our Support Groups.

Training

Our Training programme ranges from one-day workshops on specific issues, like education or life-story work, to inspiring and informative conferences and in-depth preparation and training for being a therapeutic parent. Find out more about what's on offer.
