How to prepare for an Adoption Activity Day
Once an Adoption Activity Day is commissioned the Adoption Activity Days Team spend a significant period of time working with agencies to prepare and plan. This includes working with all key stakeholders, such as children’s social workers and foster carers, to provide information about Adoption Activity Days and to offer training, tools and advice around their role before, during and after the event.
We give all parties the opportunity to ask questions and to raise any issues or concerns they might have.

How are children prepared for Adoption Activity Days?
How do adopters and children interact?
On the day of the event, children are already playing by the time prospective adopters enter the activity space; there will be lots of opportunities for adopters to join in and they will be supported to engage with the children by their social workers and by Adoption Activity Day staff and volunteers.
Adopters may approach and talk freely to children and we encourage everybody to have fun.
