Support for birth parents and relatives
The adoption support team works with adopted children and adoptive parents, adult adoptees, birth families and special guardians. Working alongside the social workers in the team we have specialist input from a play therapist and a child and adolescent psychologist.
We also access specialist knowledge on education, financial issues, disability and other areas that you may need support with.
We can offer advice and support on lots of adoption issues, either by meeting with you, or by telephone. We can also put you in touch with other adopters who have shared the same experiences. Our services include:
- Mentoring service
- Support groups
- Parenting courses
- Advice and information
- Training events
- Counselling and therapeutic support
- Fathering groups
- Life Story work
- Children activities
- Annual picnic
