Supporting Foster Carers and parents of adopted children.
At Mind First we recognise that being an adoptive parent or a foster carer can be extremely rewarding. As with all parenting, it can also feel challenging and confusing. At times your child’s behaviour may seem overwhelming, at Mind First we offer an opportunity for you to work through your emotions and the impact that your child’s behaviour has on you. This would be a separate space simply about supporting you.

Attachment and school as a “secure base”
Loss, transitions and separation
