We Are family is an adoption support community that operates in and around London. The group was founded in June 2013.
We welcome all adopters, including prospective and approved adopters.
The parent support groups however, continue to be exclusively for adopters and their families, as do most playgroups.
We Are Family users are primarily domestic adopters and concurrent carers representing seven charities and twenty-two local authorities. We also have a few intercountry adopters amongst us.
All types of families attend our activities – gay, lesbian, straight, single or couples. Many fathers come along, either alone or with their partners. The single adopters in our group have formed their own pan London subgroup. Similarly, the approved and prospective adopters have set up another pan London subgroup specifically for them. In both cases it was felt that they has specific needs that were not addressed by our other activities.
We do not offer advice, but active support and ‘organic buddying’ through our regular initiatives.
On this site we have added a few pages featuring some of our favourite books and websites, where advice can be sought.
If you would like to join us, please contact us.
