We Are Family Shepherds Bush

We Are Family Shepherds Bush is a local group of adopters who meet up regularly. They provide a welcoming space to chat, share experiences and useful information, all with a friendly cup of tea! They have a monthly get-together for parents and children in a local park. A chance to chat while the children play! Prospective adopters are welcome to come along to this.

We also have regular meet-ups in the evenings just for parents. They provide a confidential environment in which to reflect on adoptive parenthood. These sessions are for adoptive families only. Our meetings are always informal, friendly and parent-led. Please get in touch by emailing [email protected]
