DC Network Children's Workshops
At our national meetings we offer a workshop for donor conceived children aged 8-12yrs, or non-donor conceived siblings in this age bracket. These workshops are only available to members attending the main meeting.
DC Network holds two national conferences a year. The meeting offers a chance for members to meet in small groups to discuss personal issues, as well as the opportunity to hear 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. The next one will be in London Spring 2014. The date will be confirmed December 2013 and full details and booking forms will be sent out to members in January 2014. Join DC Network now to be sure of an invitation.
DCN Member 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.
DC Network volunteers organise local events and meetings around the country. To see where we have groups look at the Local Groups section of the website in the members-only menu on the right. If we don't have a group near you, you could start one. We have lots of things we can do to support you in getting a new group up and running.
