TalkAdoption in the North East is here for adopted children, young people, aged 0-21 years, and their families in the North East region (from North Yorkshire to Northumberland and everywhere in between!).

The TalkAdoption Team works closely with the Steering Group (made up of adopted young people) to ensure that the activities, groups, session and events that we provide are reflective of the needs and wishes of adopted young people in our region, with an added creative twist flowing throughout our service.

We develop and provide activities within safe environments where people are able to express their feelings, build their confidence, learn new skills, strengthen their own sense of identity and meet others in similar situations… all whilst having fun!

The overarching aim of TalkAdoption in the North East is to work together to build stronger families.

TalkAdoption North East offers regular family days, play groups, adoptive parent’s sessions, creative workshops and young person’s groups and events. We also regularly encourage and enable older adopted young people to get involved in service development within the organisation via the steering group or young person’s group.

This includes helping to plan and host the events and activities provided by TalkAdoption, as well as having opportunities to get involved with project presentations and addressing key decision makers to share your experiences with prospective adopters, education, health, legal and social care professionals.
