Building the foundations for a happy future.

SafeBase is After Adoption’s therapeutic parenting programme for adoptive parents, foster carers and Special Guardians. It creates a strong foundation for loving and lasting relationships within the family, giving children the confidence to feel safe and secure with their parents or carers.

SafeBase is unique because we provide a bespoke family session and feedback as part of the programme.

SafeBase is effective in:

  • Providing practical strategies tailored to the family
  • Strengthening family wellbeing and hope for the future
  • Putting attachment and child development into context for the family
  • Explaining the impact of early adversity on brain development
  • Building secure attachments


The service has given me focus and strategies that can be used with my child to improve the quality of our relationships.

What next?

Places on our SafeBase Therapeutic Parenting Programme can be spot purchased and funded through the Adoption Support Fund. We’d be happy to talk to you about this in more detail.
