Coram Ambitious for Adoption on Coronavirus/COVID-19

We have adapted both our adoption enquiry and adoption support services during the coronavirus pandemic. We are still very much welcoming new enquiries during this time, with many of our services now taking place virtually. We are following Government guidelines in all our practices.

Adoption information meetings

While we are not able to offer in-person information events at the moment, we are hosting online webinars. See our events page for upcoming events.

If you have any questions about information events our enquiry line is open. Ring 0207 520 0383 to have a chat with one of our social workers, or email [email protected].

Adoption support 

Supporting adoptive families is our top priority. We are dedicated to continuing to deliver our services, while operating within the government’s health advice.

We are offering a range of new and adapted services to support families during the Covid-19 outbreak. These services have been made possible by the Adoption Support Fund (ASF), which has made extra therapeutic support available outside of the usual ASF application process in light of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Our dedicated adoption support helpline 0207 520 0383 is operating as per normal Monday to Friday from 9.00am to 1.00pm.  We are aware that many families may experience additional challenges due to the change of routine, and we encourage all adopters to get in touch with us for support and advice, either by phone or by email: [email protected]

Unfortunately all Coram Adoption Workshops, Training, Coffee Mornings and Stay and Play events due to take place during the current period of social distancing have been postponed for the moment.  

We will continue to provide up-to-date information about our services and support through our communications channels, including via social media on Facebook and Twitter, through email updates and here on our website.
