Guide for churches


We’ve also produced a booklet for churches, explaining more about adoption and fostering. If you attend a church, why not give this guide to leaders or others in your congregation. It’ll help them better understand you and your child’s needs, and how they can support you. Read our guide for churches here or receive a free copy by post.

Dos and Don’ts


You might like to share these ‘Dos and Don’ts’ with friends and family, to help give them more understanding of what it can be like for adoptive/foster families.

We also have a printer friendly version that is free to download here.
