Family days and children's groups

We offer a vast array of events and activities for adoptive families and adopted children throughout the country. Attending them gives you a chance to talk to other people in your area about the experience of raising an adopted child and learn different parenting skills.

One of our recent events was held in Manchester in January 2012. Over 40 families and 100 people were entertained by the Mad Scientist who taught everyone to make slime and brought some Olympic experiments for people to get involved in. We also had people decorating t-shirts, face painting and playing games.

I love this party. I liked making a soft bunny rabbit

Lovely time. We’ve met other families that are in the same position as us. Thank you

We loved making the goo and experiments in science
