Do I have to have training before I can adopt?

Posted on: 21 June 2013

Yes. Even if you are an experienced parent of birth children, parenting adopted children can require a very different set of skills or mindset. We believe it is vital that you have the opportunity to be as prepared as you can be for what might happen.

Come along and meet us at one of our monthly information sessions. Our events are a great way to find out more about adoption.

In Stage 1 of the process there is a mandatory Foundation Workshop as well as e-learning opportunities, all of which will feed into your Portfolio.

In Stage 2 you will be undertaking your assessment as well as attending two more mandatory workshops. In reality, this is probably only the start of your learning experience around adoption and we provide a rolling programme of post-approval workshops to address many areas of interest around you and your adopted child.
