Parent support groups take place in comfortable surroundings over a cuppa on a weekday evening. Most local groups host them monthly, while some host them every other week.
These sessions are strictly for adoptive parents (from matching onwards) and provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to to reflect of adoptive parenthood with like-minded parents. We offer support, but not advice.
The sessions are free. In the sessions we adhere to a set of ground rules, which can be found here.
The single adopters amongst us have formed their own groups in North London and South London, which meet monthly. There is a creche available for these groups.
Prospective adopters are advised to join the pan-London group for prospective adopters (from stage 2 onwards).
Please contact your local WAF groups for more information.
