Community Groups

Our local Community Groups are run by volunteers for Adoption UK members in Wales. The groups provide a supportive environment for all members of the adoption community through a variety of meet ups, including evening meetings, coffee mornings and family events. We also have a growing support group for adoptees in Wales, which meets in Cardiff.

Would you like to help run a group in your local area, or perhaps start one if your area is not currently offering a group? Contact the Community Support Coordinator for an informal discussion on 029 2023 0319 or email [email protected]
