What support do you offer?

Many of our families say they chose Adoption Matters due to our commitment to ongoing support. We offer support from your first email or call, throughout your adoption assessment, to the placement of a child or children, through to their first days at school, college and beyond, for as long as you need it.

We offer support to prospective adopters, approved adopters and their extended family, adopted adults and birth families.

We offer a unique support and therapy service supporting adoption and permanency through our Centre for Adoption Support. The Centre offers a wide range of therapeutic support from a highly skilled team including occupational therapists. Our therapy service offers assessments conducted by a clinical psychologist and interventions include approaches that incorporate developments in neuropsychology, brain development, and sensory integration.

The Centre offers a wide range of webinars are free of charge for Adoption Matters families and Regional Adoption Agency (RAA) families that are currently receiving support from the Centre for Adoption Support. If you are an adopter, special guardian or foster carer from a different agency, the cost to attend our webinars is £15 per person. We also offer a suite of online training videos from the Centre free of charge for anyone to access here: www.adoptionmatters.org/onlinetraining
