National TalkAdoption Managersarahskelton@afteradoption.org.uk
I co-ordinate the national TalkAdoption programme, supporting staff, overseeing residential therapeutic camps and short breaks. I also work with local authorities and funders to deliver bespoke services for young adopted people.
My background is in child protection, education and training across the private and voluntary sector. I care about giving young people a voice and a space to be creative, develop, engage and succeed. I think that’s what TalkAdoption provides; a space for young people to just be. It’s works like a springboard to other activities. Our parents often say our person-centred approach enables young people to achieve what they wouldn’t have thought possible. I’m very proud to be part of delivering that service.
