Activities and events

Activities and events

As a Diagrama adopter you can benefit from a wide range of activities and events provided by us.

Support groups

We have separate support groups for parents and for children and young people, where our adopters and their families meet informally several times a year.

Our adoption team arranges the sessions and you will have the chance to share experiences with other adopters, gather information on specific areas of interest and hear from guest speakers or advisers.

The aim of our children’s sessions is to offer the chance to meet other adopted children so they will not feel isolated by their circumstance.

These regular meet-ups are always informal and fun!


Parties and picnics and more...

We hold parties, picnics and outings for the children we work with across our adoption and fostering services, where parents and carers get the chance to chat in a social environment while children spend a few hours getting to know each other and having LOTS of fun! We find this is a really useful way for everyone to benefit from peer support, no matter what age you are.

Here’s our calendar of adoption support events.

Our adopters are also able to access our comprehensive adoption training programme and education advice too.


Enhanced Connection Attachment-Focused Parenting/Carers Group

The Enhanced Connection Group is a unique, stimulating, empowering and experiential group aimed at adopters, foster carers and SGO carers who care for traumatised children.

This online group will run over 9 weeks and consists of weekly 2.5 hour sessions with up to 8 participants. The group will be facilitated by two experienced children and family social workers from Diagrama who hold additional therapeutic qualifications and practice knowledge.
