At Adopt South West, we would like you to reflect on your adoption journey as a family and we are asking for your views.

We are continually evaluating our adoption support services to make sure we provide the best support possible. Kath Drescher, our Service Manager at Adopt South West, asks you to share your lived experience of adoption to ensure your family is at the heart of influencing and shaping our services for the future.

Please join Adoption UK and local Adopter Voice Champion, Tris, online on

Tuesday 21 September at 7.30pm for an Ideas Factory open forum (register now).

Please come along and join Tris to share your views on:

  • What do you wish Adopt South West had told you at the beginning?
  • Having lived the adoption journey, experienced some bumps in the road and the challenges that come with adoption/the harder stuff, how could Adopt South West have supported you and helped you to understand more?
  • What topics would you like the next years focus forms to cover?

Following on from the Ideas Factory forum, there will be four forums held during October and November. These sessions will run online 7.30pm to 9.00pm:

Adopter Voice will then plan to discuss the topics you raise on the following dates:
