For adults and children.

This group is for foster, adoptive and special guardianship families who are caring for children with additional needs. The group is run in a large church with several rooms, each attended by volunteers, enabling parents some brief respite to engage with other parents. It runs from 10.30-12.30 and ends with a buffet lunch. The rooms include: sensory room, craft room, creche, cinema room, games room, parents refreshment area. This group invites organisations and people to attend and share advice and offer support to parents.



Home for Good recognises how valuable peer-to-peer support groups can be for carers and adoptive parents and we know that groups connect people who encourage and support each other in amazing ways. We resource facilitators of peer-to-peer groups and signpost people to groups that meet in their area. However, groups are not run by Home for Good and are therefore the sole responsibility of the church or organisation which hosts them.

This group has committed to adhere to our peer-to-peer support group guidelines. If you have concerns about a peer-to-peer support group, please do let us know as we encourage the promotion of good practice throughout the network of groups that have connected with us.
