Adoption Support

1. Support for adoptive parents

We know that adoption is a lifelong commitment.

The Post Order Support Team provide post order services for all those involved in the 'adoption triangle', including:

  • children
  • adopted adults
  • adopters
  • birth relatives
  • special guardians

We recognise that adoptive parents and their children may require on going support or assistance at specific times.

Adoption support can be requested at any point. We provide a service for people affected by adoption who live in Buckinghamshire.

 

Types of support

There are various types of adoption support available, an assessment will help us determine what service may be suitable:

  • Young people's group for adopted children
  • Special Guardian's monthly support group
  • specialist parenting groups
  • means tested financial assistance for families, based on the child's needs 
  • twice yearly social events for adoptive families
  • newsletters
  • contact reviews
  • regular workshops and specialist courses for adopters and special guardians
  • life story consultations

Further support can be accessed via requesting an Assessment of Need. You can discuss this further by contacting the advice line.
