REACH children’s groups

REACH

We offer two children’s groups: one for children aged between 7 and 11 years and one for children aged between 12 and 17 years, who have been adopted through Adopt Together. We meet several times a year, usually in the school holidays.

 

Support through REACH

If your child or children would like to get together with other adopted children and young people then REACH gives them that opportunity.  Every child that joins REACH has the chance to come together with, form relationships and share experiences with other adopted children; forming friendships in a safe and fun environment. All of the staff are therapeutically trained to support your child throughout the day. REACH offers various activities throughout the year, during the school holidays, held at youth centres and trips out.

What we do:

  • Arts and crafts
  • Baking
  • Cinema
  • Music activities
  • Dance workshops
  • Alton Towers
  • White Post Farm

 

 “I had the best day of my life ever; it was great fun”

 

REACH gives young people the chance to meet with their peers, share their feelings about being adopted and the opportunity to discuss their feelings openly with people who understand adoption.

 

“It’s cool everyone is adopted”
