Adopters Support Group

Parenting Special Children has set up a support group for adoptive parents of children and young people who have experienced developmental trauma.

Research shows that Adopters face unique challenges in their parenting that are often not understood by well-meaning family and friends.

Aims of the Support Group:

  • Provide a safe and supportive environment to share experiences and explore the unique challenges faced by Adoptive parents
  • Establish support/social networks for Adoptive parents

The support group runs alongside the Let’s Get Creative sessions for adopted children. Adoptive parents and carers are welcome to attend the sessions without a child attending Let’s Get Creative. Please book a parent/carer ticket on the Let’s Get Creative event.



Saturday 10th September: 10am-12pm: alongside the Let’s Get Creative! Adopted Children session.


If you would like further information please call Zobia Kalim on 07557 102623 or email

Please note: The Support Group is only suitable for Parents/Carers. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide childcare, or accommodate children, unless otherwise stated.

Covid Precautions: Please do not attend if you are unwell.
