Support in Adoption

Support in Adoption Image

DFW Adoption is committed to providing support to adoptive families and their children whenever it’s needed.

We know that families can experience difficulties at all sorts of different times in their lives – and we want to make it easy for adopters to come back to us to seek advice and help if they ever need it.

As a team we provide informal ways for adopters to stay in touch with the organisation. Our workers write a twice yearly newsletter for families and other interested parties and family and social events are organised throughout the year.

In May 2015 the government launched the Adoption Support Fund recognising that many families need some kind of therapeutic support following adoption and too many have struggled to get the help they need in the past. The Fund will enable them to access the services they need more easily in future. At DFW we are able to help you access the fund and to identify the right support for you and your child.
