What kind of support will I get from Devon County Council after I have adopted?

Posted on: 21 June 2013

We believe in good post-adoption support. Have a look at our support web pages.

Your assessing social worker remains with you right up until you apply for the Adoption Order in court. If needed in that time, they will introduce you to a social worker in the Devon Adoption Support Team who can advise on supporting your child on an emotional level and understanding their behaviour. 

You will be given access to further training in Therapeutic Parenting, and other relevant workshops, as well as links to other adoption specialists as needed.  We will give you a login and password to the ‘Approved Adopters’ Zone’  – here you can access newsletters, contacts, updates, and events available for adoptive parents and their children.
