We pride ourselves on providing support throughout the adoption process and beyond.
So for prospective adopters and adoptive parents, we offer a series of informative sessions that are helpful and fun. Often featuring key speakers with extensive experience in their field, the sessions are run throughout the year in various locations across the county.
Details of forthcoming courses will be posted on this page when they are available but if you want to find out more, email us.
Please note: all courses listed here are only for prospective adopters and adoptive parents who are eligible for support after adoption from Nottinghamshire County Council. If you are unsure whether you are eligible, please email us as we may consider your application if we have space.
Nottinghamshire Adoption Community Website
We offer all Nottinghamshire adoptive parents access to a secure password-protected adopter information portal.
This portal gives you access to a range of 'rooms', each devoted to a specific topic. The rooms contain information, learning materials and video relating to the topic. Some areas overlap, and you will find material linked across different topics. This website is intended to work alongside our programme of adoptive parent's learning events
You will also find links to other relevant websites, back copies of our publications 'Support After Adoption Newsletter', news of young people's activities and regular updates. In the future you will be able to attend Webinars from the comfort of your own home through 'Liveroom'.
If you have forgotten your password or username, or would like your password to be reset, please email us.
Adoption Learning and Development working with Nottinghamshire Libraries have put an extensive collection of books and resources on adoption and childcare in local libraries around Nottinghamshire.
All Nottinghamshire adopters receive a card which entitles them to reserve any book or resource in the collection - free of charge.
If you are a Nottinghamshire adopter or prospective adopter and you haven't received a letter and peel-out card, please email Rachael Ellis.
