We Are Family
We are Family provides a ‘peer-to-peer’ ( i.e . parent-to-parent) mutual support community for adoptive parents and prospective adopters, so that they, in turn, can be better equipped to support their children, many of whom have experienced extreme pre-adoption trauma or neglect. Currently operating through 10 groups in and around London and Essex, WAF offers its c. 520 active registered members free or low-cost (often subsidised) activities, including: parent support meetings; playgroups; coffee and chat sessions; family meet-ups and parties; and information evenings. We Are Family are using funding from The Fore to expand their volunteer management capacity, enabling them to grow the team of volunteers significantly, unlocking increased scale and sustainability.
