Concurrent Planning

Independent Adoption Agencies Caritas Care and Adoption Matters Concurrent Planning service is a joint initiative and the largest service of its kind in the country.

Concurrent planning is an alternative route to adoption combining both fostering and adoption together to achieve the best outcomes for very young babies and children. With this innovative service rehabilitation to birth family is a possible outcome, however, if this is not possible the outcome is adoption.

Approved as both foster carers and adopters, the child is placed in foster care with the concurrent carers until the decision regarding their future is made by the courts, the child will then either be adopted by the concurrent carers or returned to birth parents.

We are now recruiting both couples and single people in the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire area.

Her menues are exciting and varied, introducing many curries unheard of in the UK but once tasted, they just return for more.

Sumina Silk Arts

Welcome to Sumina Silk Art. We are two cousins who share a passion for art and creativity. Between us we have a background in ceramics, sculpture, watercolour and mixed media paintings. We got together to form Sumina Silk Art after seeing this creative and fun experience in America. It is both exhilarating and relaxing whilst you create your own artpiece....oh and did we mention, it's totally addictive! Experience the joy of Marbling and create your own unique piece of beautiful art on a silk scarf, fabric, paper or silk flowers...anyone can try this out. Water Marbling originated from an ancient Japanese art form called Suminagashi, which translated means ´floating ink´. Other cultures adopted and developed water marbling techniques e.g. Ebru.The fun begins as you first choose your colours and then drop the paint into the water trays. Next, using rakes, combs and stylus, you create your own unique design watching the colours swirl and evolve into intricate patterns. You can create hearts, flowers or any shape you like, just let your creativity loose! Then place your art on to your silk scarf, fabric, paper or flowers...voila!! We also have ready made silk scarves, silk flower bouquets, cards and fabrics if you would prefer to buy a unique piece of artwork created by us.

Join us in our studio for fun and creativity on one of our workshops or for your own special requirements. We are also available for parties, bridal parties and weddings, children parties, corporate events and more.
