What-is-wraparound-service

Our wrap around service offers a range of support, from just being there at the end of a telephone to advise and guide you through any situation you find yourself in as an adoptive parent. We aim to respond within 24 hours (working days) following a request for support.

For any help and enquiries, you can contact us on 0300 800 001

Telephone Counselling

A confidential, empathic, non-judgmental counselling service for adoptive parents. The counsellor uses a very client centred approach with a personal appreciation of the challenges adoption can present. You may wish to explore your adoption journey and the often difficult issues that can arise, such as:

Thoughts and feelings of uncertainty brought up by the adoption process

Feelings of loss and grief

Disappointment

Frustration

Difficulty bonding with your child or children

Difficulties coping with challenging behaviour

Anger

Resentment

Depression

Relationship difficulties

The impact on your wider family

Support Groups

Our regional support groups give adopters the opportunity to meet with other adopters in their community and share experiences and support. Our support workers also attend these meetings and are happy to give advice and support to you and your family. If you also have any suggestions about topics these groups may like to discuss we would be happy to hear from you.

Family Activities

We offer regular activity days for families, particularly during the holidays. These can be anything from Toddler events and coffee mornings to hosting holiday activities for older children. Some of the activities we run are in conjunctions with Local Authorities. We also run a support group for parents whose children are living away from home.

 

Telephone Support

Our experienced team of social workers and support workers are on hand to offer telephone support from the simplest advice, such as Disability Living Allowance, to help with accessing therapeutic support when things are more complex. We are also able to offer advice via email and post if preferred.

Summer Camps

We are able to offer yearly Summer Camps for our children through the Falcon Camps programme. Falcons provide challenge, excitement, fun, rest and laughter for 8-18 year olds who face disadvantage in their day-to-day lives. Each summer almost 30 holidays take place providing respite, fellowship and adventure to over 500 children and young people.
