Events

National Family Conferences

DC Network holds two national conferences a year, one in London in the Spring and one out-of-London in the Autumn. The conferences offer a chance for members to meet in small groups to discuss personal issues, as well as the opportunity to hear personal stories and talks from expert speakers. We normally offer our Children's Workshops at our conferences. These are half-day workshops for donor conceived children or siblings of donor conceived children aged between 8 and 12yrs. Join DC Network now to be sure of an invitation.

Our next conference will be held in Edinburgh, Scotland on Saturday 1st October 2016. Invitations and booking instructions will go out to all members in June. Click here to see the programme.and to register you can use this link Edinburgh Conference Registration

DCN Member Support Groups

We have groups for sub groups within the network to support families in specific situations. For example, we have a group for solo mums, lesbians, older mums and those who have used a family member as a donor.
