Event diary

Our event diary shows you all of the activity that is happening within the SWLA Consortium.

We hold frequent adoption information meetings that give you the information you need about adopting with us and what it’s really like. The sessions are friendly, relaxed and are led by our specialised social workers. You can come along, take all the information away with you and just listen.

To come along to one of these meetings, fill in our contact form or call us on 0300 123 8085. You will also see in our diary the dates of our upcoming adoption preparation training.

Prospective adopters undertake the adoption preparation training in stage two of their assessment. We have also included all of our upcoming adoption support sessions. This is to give you a good idea of what support is available to our adopters post-approval.

Meet The Adopter Event

Wednesday, June 19, 2019 - Civic Offices, Sutton - Information meeting

6.30 pm till 8.30 pm

This event gives you the real life story of adoption from a a panel of our adoptive parents.  They will tell you about their experience of the adoption process and, more importantly, their experience as parents.  They are also happy to take questions.  You can attend a Meet The Adopter event if you are at the early stages of thinking about adoption or if you are in Stage One or Stage Two and still find it really useful.

We would like you to attend an information meeting as well as a Meet The Adopter event as they give the business side of adoption and tell you more about what strengths and experience you need to have to be able to meet the needs of the children waiting for a family.
