We Are Family is a peer to peer support community by adopters, for adopters. We’re there for parents throughout their adoption journey. Online and in person, our parents’ groups, events, resources and talks offer mutual support, information and inspiration to adopters and those considering adoption.


Our community offers support from a place of lived experience. We have seven geographically based groups in London, as well as specific groups for prospective and single adopters, and we offer webinars and talks online. We provide information and resources via our online Member Hub and, best of all, membership is free!

We’re open to all adopters, and prospective adopters from Stage 1 (exploring, considering adoption, Stage 1 of assessment process), irrespective of family set-up, race, religion, and sexual orientation. The charity is growing, so we can support more adoptive families throughout the UK.
