What next?

Our aim is to make SafeBase available to all adoptive families in the UK. So, no matter where you live or what your financial circumstances are, please get in touch so that we can work with you to help you access a SafeBase programme.

Funding your place

Local authority partnerships

SafeBase is usually free providing we are working in partnership with your local authority.

Did you adopt through Families that Last?

SafeBase is available at no cost to all families approved by our family finding agency, Families that Last.

Self-funding a Bursaries

It is also possible to self-fund. John and Alex Timpson, via the Timpson Foundation, have made available bursaries to help parents attend SafeBase. If you are experiencing difficulty in getting funding, please let us know.

Adoption Support Fund

The Adoption Support Fund will allow adoptive parents to apply directly for finance to pay for therapeutic services. SafeBase and/or Theraplay® services may be funded by the scheme.
