Do I need experience of looking after children?

Posted on: 23 June 2013

Adopted children can present challenging behaviour because of their past experiences and you will need to be confident in managing this. Therefore, you will need to gain some experience of looking after other people’s children before we can take your interest further. This could involve caring for young family members, friends’ children, volunteering in nurseries or playgroups, for example.

Devon Adoption can give you advice on how to do this.
