Getting help

If you are an adoptive parent,  Support After Adoption offers you various services once the adoption order has been made.

You can get help with welfare rights, education, health (including mental health), services for black families, youth service and services for disabled children.

We also offer a number of courses for family members. Please contact Support After Adoption for more information.

Working closely with national adoption groups such as Adoption UK (website: www.adoptionuk.org/) and the British Association for Adoption and Fostering (website: www.baaf.org.uk), we also offer training courses, seminars and conferences for adopters as well as regular updates through mailings and a newsletter - get in touch to find out how we can help you.


Nottinghamshire Adoption service has produced two leaflets for people who have adopted.

Support services will differ, depending on whether you live in Nottinghamshire or outside.
