Adoption: The Continuing Story | Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff | Tuesday 8th April 2014
with a networking dinner the evening before at St. David's Hotel & Spa
Our next conference will explore the continuing story of adoption, from the moment the child enters the care system through to matching and placement and the lifelong impact and support that is needed for all affected.
A diverse range of keynote speakers and workshop presenters will consider the child’s perspective in the continung story, as well as that of adopted young people, adopted adults and birth relatives.
The conference will be of interest to those working in the fields of adoption, fostering, childcare, youth work and mental health, such as CAMHS; as well as academics.
When & Where
After Adoption finds adoptive families for those children who wait the longest in care - particularly those who are older, need to be placed with their brothers and sisters, or have a disability.
We then support those families as long as they need us, to help make those adoptions last.
We also provide support to adults adopted as children, and birth relatives of those adopted. We support all those whose lives have been affected by adoption.
