The very first moment you consider becoming a parent via adoption is the start of your adoption journey; an exploration of whether this is the right option for you and the steps that you will need to take as you build your family.

As part of the support that you will receive throughout this entire process and beyond, at ARC Adoption North East you will benefit from various training such as: Stage 1 and Stage 2 training, Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity, Empathy (PACE) training, and connected by adoption training, all of which will help you, and those close to you to prepare for you becoming a parent. Training takes place on the following dates throughout the year.
