The Adoptables is a peer network of adopted young people that enables them to express their views about their experiences as adopted young people at home, in school and in post-adoption support.
What we do
Run by Coram, the Adoptables involves adopted young people aged between 13 and 25 in a range of workshops and public appearances. We also offer a toolkit for teachers to help staff and students learn best about how to support adopted young people at school.
How the Adoptables can help you
Young People: Get your voice heard. Tell us about your experience of adoption; what works, what doesn’t work so well and tell us how decision-makers can improve adoption for children and young people like you across the country. Meet Jake, an Ambassador for adopted young people.
Parents: A safe place where your children can express themselves while building friendships with other adopted young people who have a shared understanding of each other's experiences.
Adoption professionals: The Adoptables can create a platform for you to set up your own young people's group and support you in creating a group which can help inform how we can best deliver good practice throughout your service.
Schools and teachers: A chance to hear what the day-to-day reality is for adopted young people at school. To understand how best to support adopted young people at school, you can download our Schools' Toolkit.
