Support for adoptive families

We recognise that the process of adoption does not stop once the matching has taken place and the legal process is completed. While an adoptive family is just like any other family, we realise that there are particular issues which an adoptive family faces.

If you’re part of an adoptive family, we’re here to help you through.

Find out about the support offered by After Adoption



Being an adoptive parent is very, very hard – there are times when we struggle, and it makes such a huge difference to us to know that we have the professional and emotional support available through After Adoption. I would, and do, recommend them to anyone I know who is thinking of adopting or who has adopted. The service and support they offer are a real lifeline to our family.
