We are delighted to inform you that the ‘Not for Profit’ National Association of Therapeutic Parents is here to help.

Since our launch on 6th March 2017 we have welcomed over 2500 new members and have over 100 volunteers throughout the UK and Internationally who support ANY parent, whether they are a Foster Parent, Adopter, Kinship Carer, Special Guardian or Biological parents whose children have suffered trauma through either pre or postnatal stress, neglect, domestic violence and/or abuse NATP can support them.

The NATP was formed in response to a need for a different kind of intervention to better support Therapeutic Parents. This need was identified through;

• Important Research – ‘No one told us it was going to be like this’ carried out by Fostering Attachments Ltd, and The University of Bristol with Professor Julie Selwyn and Dr Heather Ottoway. Which was requested by the Commons Select Committee to be heard in evidence as part of central governments Fostering Inquiry.

• Feedback from our social media of over 20,500 Therapeutic Parents and supporting professionals, which continues to grow on a monthly basis.

• Over 100 training events, seminars, conferences and workshops carried out throughout the UK and internationally with Foster Parents, adopters, kinship carers, step parents, special guardians and biological parents of children who have suffered trauma or separation.

If you require further information on price and/or membership benefits for staff and families or bespoke packages, please contact:
