Today is TV & Media day!

Founder member and chair of POTATO is to appear on the Victoria Derbyshire BBC2 programme.

Together with fellow experienced adoptive parents we explain that;

  1. We love our traumatised adoptees but sometimes it is too hard for them to manage in a family. Love isn’t enough on it’s own.
  2. Our families and adopted young people need specialist ongoing support.
  3. Adoptive parents need to be treated kindly by the services. In POTATO group we are kind.

Also, radio 5 are revisiting their file on 4 survey with one of our members speaking as a guest.

If you are an adoptive parents and would like to join our group:

  1. email our friendly administration support team
  2. please complete the membership form
  3. do pay the annual donation (currently £10) via paypal or BACS. Or £1 a month. Or donate a supplementary amount to support the work of POTATO group.
  4. Ask for a visit if you are unknown to group members.
  5. Enjoy a friendly visit and if desired join our hidden Facebook support group.
  6. further visits and socials, AGM and annual conference.
