Who we are
CACH-All is a support group for families in (or originally from) the United Kingdom who have completed an intercountry adoption (or are in the process of doing so). We are stronger together.
We have children/young adults adopted from 17 countries: Belize, Bulgaria, Cambodia, China, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Hong Kong, Italy, Jamaica, Malaysia, Romania, Russia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, USA. Many of them are now adults!
CACH (Children adopted from China) was founded in 1995 by a small group of families who had adopted young children from China. Pre-empting the many challenges that both they and their children would face in the coming years, they built a network that would facilitate the support and information that they believed they would need.
In 2017 our members voted overwhelmingly to open membership to include all families who have been touched by intercountry adoption. This includes adult and teenage international adoptees, who can join CACH-All through our young adult membership. We are delighted that we have 6 teens/young adults on our committee helping to shape the future of CACH-All. If you have any questions, please drop a line to email@example.com
The membership is in the region of 500 families. We are widely regarded as the main support group for post-adoption of intercountry children in the UK.

All members receive our magazine about three times a year, which is packed with articles and specific topics relating to intercountry adoption. This usually includes a specific section for the children. If you would like to contribute, contact Caroline Smales. Members also have access to a members only Facebook group, which has then led to other regional groups forming as well as the CACH-ALL Mums and Lads groups respectively.
All members are invited to attend the annual festival (picnic/camping/B&B weekend), usually held in June. Full members can also attend the Reunion, a weekend event in a hotel in the midlands.
