October 2017 Preparation Group

Thursday 5th October

All prospective adopters are required to attend and participate in a series of group meetings designed to provide you with the information and skills needed for adoptive parenting.

Although we recognise this can sound a bit daunting, the feedback from prospective adopters has been consistently positive about the experience.

“The preparation course was so helpful and enjoyable… meeting experienced adopters really made us think about some of the issues in a new way”

We run a minimum of 7 Preparation Groups each year, including one group for 2nd time adopters. The groups run on different days and times in order to give prospective adopters choice and flexibility. We aim to book prospective adopters onto the next available course, but sometimes our preparation groups fill quickly.

When this happens we will look to organise additional groups, as we do not want unnecessary delays for prospective adopters or the children waiting for adoption. However, we do sometimes need to prioritise places and will discuss this process with you if it applies. 

This preparation group will run on Thursday 5, 12, 19 and 26 October. If you would like to attend this preparation group please contact the office on 0131 553 5060.
