SSAFA's Post-Adoption Support

We will support you at every stage of your adoption journey

How does SSAFA support me and my family after the adoption process?

We understand that there can be challenges throughout your journey as an adoptive family.  SSAFA provides a fantastic Post Adoption Support service, with a dedicated Post Adoption Senior Social Worker who can support you when you need it most. We can provide: 

  • Advice as and when you need it from a friendly professional, by phone, email or in person
  • Help accessing support from your Local Authority
  • An assessment of your family’s individual needs, and help sourcing the right services to support you all
  • Signposting and support to gain access to other specific services such as therapy, further training, educational support, support groups and peer support networks
  • Liaison with schools and other agencies to help them understand the needs of your children
  • Ongoing emotional support, whether it's a listening ear over the phone or through home visits
  • Activity events for adoptive families, giving you and your children a chance to bond and meet others in a similar situation
  • Advocacy for your family with military service leads, for example, when there are housing issues or if you need to request a deferment of a posting
  • Regular communication via bi-annual newsletters sharing news and useful information
