Adoption Uk Connected logoAdoption UK’s ‘Connected’ service offers bespoke monthly sessions for adopted children age 7- 10 and young people age 11 – 25 years old.

Their monthly groups aim to improve children and young peoples’ self-confidence, build self-esteem and reduce the sense of isolation which some adopted children experience while also developing life skills.

This is achieved by offering a range of activities such as art, drama, circus skills, healthy eating/cooking and music sessions to name but a few. Their focus is on the adopted child feeling safe so they can build relationships with their peers.

Monthly sessions are currently offered in Carmarthen, Swansea and Cardiff; with additional groups being developed in other areas (Brecon, Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and South East Wales). Over time, they hope groups will become available across Wales to meet demand.
