Activity Days

Coram's Adoption Activity Days and Fostering Activity Days give prospective adopters and foster carers the opportunity to interact with children and young people in a safe, supported and fun environment

They enable participants to discover whether they feel an emotional connection with a child, rather than just relying on a written profile.

Activity Days are a unique means of finding permanence for those children deemed harder to place. They are delivered by specialist staff, who ensure that the children and young people involved enjoy a fun and exciting day.

Making a connection

Each Activity Day is a themed event, full of child-centred and age appropriate play, activities and entertainment. They are designed to encourage positive interaction between children of all ages and their prospective permanent carers, so they can get to know one another. Activity Days emphasise the importance of personal chemistry in human relationships.
