Adoption Support Services

Here at Faith in Families, we are a registered charity and adoption agency. Based in Nottingham, we provide adoption related services in Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and beyond. From children’s groups to social events and individual counselling; there is a range of services available to suit you.

Our adoption support services offer guidance for adoptive parents, as well as training services. Families are at the heart of what we do, and our adoption support services are available to adoptive families, continuing the relationship beyond the initial adoption process, providing long-term support if you need it.

Through listening and working with families since 1948, we make sure to offer a range of support, from phone support to parenting training. We also can help with school advice with our specialist Education Advisor. Practical help is at hand as we also help with financial matters such as access to adoption allowance and adoption pay.

We have a children’s group, allowing your child to connect with other adoptive children in a safe environment, based around different activities throughout the year. We also offer adult support groups to enable adopters to share any experiences and find the answers to their own questions. We can help with any required therapeutic support as well as offering practical training workshops and social events to meet with other families.

Our dedicated Adoption Support team offers long-term support to all our families, and by listening and working with you we can ensure that we give you the support you and your family need. Get in touch with the team today to find out how we can help you.
