Learning and development

Adopting a child can be a challenging experience for everyone involved. Many of our children have had a tough and unsettled start in life, and may need extra support to manage particular emotional or behavioural issues.

We have worked with adoptive parents to develop a learning and development programme to help adopters build the skills and confidence they need to support their child’s development and wellbeing.

The programme is aimed at all adoptive parents who have been approved – whether they are waiting to be matched, have children placed with them, or have already adopted a child.
