Earlier this week, SFCS took a number of our adoptive families to Pirate Island Golf in Milton Keynes.
The weather was kind as a group of our adopted children tackled a range of obstacles – including waterfalls, cannons, a giant pirate ship… and a scary crocodile! While the children grabbed their clubs and hit the golf course, the parents all relaxed and enjoyed a cuppa together in the café.
Social events are a crucial part of our adoption support service – as well as all of the professional support services we offer, we also believe that providing our adopters and their children with opportunities to socialise is vitally important.
SFCS runs social events for our adoptive families and their children throughout the year. You will find there is an activity taking place during most school holidays, which is a help to those parents who are desperately looking for ideas to keep the kids entertained!
Events on our calendar this year include indoor sledging at Snozone, a summer picnic, and a family disco. Other outings we’ve arranged in the past include indoor rock-climbing and horse-riding.
We also host regular coffee mornings for our adopters so that they can share support and ideas with other people who’ve had the same experiences as them. And our Young Person’s Group (for adopted children aged 10 – 13 years) is also proving very popular – probably because it usually involves eating pizza!
If you adopted a child through SFCS and are not currently on our adopter mailing list, you and your family could be missing out. Our events are usually free of charge for our families, but we will occasionally ask for a small donation if the cost of running an event is particularly high.
Please contact us to make sure you are on our adopter mailing list – this is the only way to ensure you receive full details of each of our events. We look forward to seeing you soon!
