6. What did participants think about the event?

6.1 Overall the feedback from the adults has been very positive and many of the children are reported to have enjoyed themselves. There were exceptions, one child in particular was reported by her carers to be unsettled and distressed following the event. Some foster carers had a number of criticisms but still felt the event was worthwhile. Prospective adopters were nearly all very positive about the event, although some described it as rather overwhelming. Social workers supporting prospective adopters and children were also positive, although again there were some thoughts about which children should attend.
