The Adoption UK Annual Conference moves north this year, to the fantastic Hotel Majestic in Harrogate.

The theme for 2019 is Stronger Families, Brighter Futures.

With multiple workshops, an exhibition marketplace and our first ever young people's zone (subject to sufficient interest), we're confident that this year's event will be bigger and better than ever!

Hear from a number of expert speakers and go away armed with knowledge and practical tips about how to build a stronger family unit and help children and young people recover from traumatic early experiences and move forward to a brighter future.  

Speakers already confirmed:
Joanne Alper, director of services at Adoptionplus
Dr Dave Williams, adviser to Welsh Government on children’s mental health

More speakers to be announced soon.

We will be holding several workshops during the afternoon session, covering topics including FASD, home education, sleep, music therapy and therapeutic parenting. We are currently confirming the arrangements and the final workshop programme will be forwarded to delegates in due course.

We are also planning our first ever young people's zone this year. This will take the form of a one-day drama or music workshop for around 20-30 children. We are aiming to keep the cost as low as possible and estimate that ticket prices will be no more than £20 per child. If you would be interested in the young people's zone please indicate this when booking.

A limited number of exhibitor stands are available at the conference - please contact [email protected] for more information.
