CoramBAAF conference: Adoption support - learning from adoptive families' experiences
22 March 2018, London
The shape and provision of future adoption support services need to be informed by what children and their adoptive families say about the support they need. We need to listen and respond positively to their voices. This conference will hear from adoptive and birth families about their needs for support and experience of services, to inform improvements in the quality of adoption support services and assessments for adoption support.
