‘Meet the Adopter’ webcasts

Our Meet the Adopter series of webcasts are a chance to hear the views and inspiring stories from a range of adopters. Find out what they learned during the process and their advice for prospective adopters.

Adoption and school

Our next webcast will focus on education. Due to early trauma, adopted children can find school difficult. We’ll be talking to Nicola, who, through her experiences as an adopter, became a trainer. She helps school staff better support children to reach their learning potential. We’ll also be joined by 22 year old adoptee, Claire. She  will share her experience of school and as an ambassador for the Coram Adoptables group which advocates for young adoptees.

Join us via the player below from 6.30 on Thursday 15th September and as ever you can send your questions and comments before or during the webcast. Please e-mail your questions and comments to socialmedia@first4adoption.org.uk. You can also tweet in advance or during the webcast to @First4Adoption using the hashtag #MeetTheAdopter.
