Interested in adoption? Find out more at our free online webinars
Anyone interesting in finding out more about adoption in Buckinghamshire is invited to attend one of the council’s new style Adoption Information Session Webinars.
Designed to give people the opportunity to find out more about how the process works and to get answers to any questions they may have, the monthly events are open to all.
Anita Cranmer, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services explained: “Since the pandemic we’ve had to rethink the way we communicate with prospective adopters. Whilst we no longer need to place restrictions on face-to-face meetings due to Covid, we have found that these free, online sessions work equally as well as in person meetings as people can tune in easily from home but still get access to all the information they need and be able to speak to our team and sometimes some of our previous adopters.”
Webinars are planned for the following dates:
- 23 August 2022
- 20 September 2022
- 18 October 2022
- 22 November 2022
Anyone interested should book their place online.
At any one time there are dozens of children in Buckinghamshire who are looking to be adopted. This includes older children, brothers and sisters and children with additional needs. Anita Cranmer said: “I would urge anyone who is thinking about adopting or those who simply want to find out more about how it all works, to get in touch with us. You can book onto our next webinar, or alternatively give us a call or send an email. We have lots of information and advice and our experienced team can answer all your questions.”
There is further information online including an Adoption Readiness Checker which allows you to consider your circumstances and gives advice about how to become ready for adoption. Alternatively, you can call: 01494 586349 or email: [email protected]
