The COVID pandemic has affected everyone in different ways so here at Adopt London we have introduced some support that you might find useful in these unsettling times, for you and your children.
This support is available to adopters and special guardians from any of our 23 London Boroughs Barking & Dagenham, Barnet, Brent, Camden, Croydon, Ealing, Enfield, Hackney, Hammersmith & Fulham, Haringey, Havering, Hounslow, Islington, Kingston, Lambeth, Lewisham, Merton, Newham, Richmond, Southwark, Sutton, Tower Hamlets and Wandsworth.
Support for families during the COVID pandemic
We have commissioned services to provide a variety of online support for adoptive families and those with a Special Guardianship Order. If you are an adopter please consider joining WAFTalks or the Adopt London Virtual Choir.
We have free memberships available for The National Association of Therapeutic Parents (NATP). You may wish to consider signing up to this support, and find out about the other Adoption Support available.
Additional support for Special Guardians is also available during the Pandemic.
