We encourage adoptive families to use ‘The Adopter Hub’ and we have some log-ins available for families to gain access. This is an online resource for the adoption community which is run by PACT (Parent and Children Together) and is a great resource.
The Hub was developed as a result of listening to adopters and working with them to provide accessible tools to empower adopters to access the support they need. The trained Adopter Peer Supporters are “experts by experience” and able to provide a listening ear through our one-to-one live webchat service. Sometimes hearing from someone who has experienced a similar situation to us is all we need to help guide us through.
The universal suite of support tools includes:
- One-to-one live webchat – online peer support
- Our specially developed Introduction to Attachment 12 module eLearning course
- A programme of webinars with topics selected by adopters
- Resources covering a wide range of subjects
The suite of tools also includes a safe and secure online adopter forum accessible only to adopters.
