We will be having the Autumn Conference in Daventry, Northamptonshire, on Saturday 19th September 2015. Full details of the venue will be advised once you have completed the booking form which can be found Here.
Places will only be reserved once both the form and payment are received. Please note it will take a few days to process payments but as soon as we are able to consolidate the payments you will receive a confirmation email and be added to the attendees list which will be posted on the board prior to the conference date. The booking form/initial confirmation contains all the information you need regarding payment details.
For those new to surrogacy, it’s an opportunity to learn a bit more about how Surrogacy UK works and whether our organisation is for you, as well as to meet people in a similar situation to yourselves – intended surrogate or parent, and to meet those who’ve been through surrogacy to find out what it’s like.
For the old-timers, it’s a chance to maybe learn a bit more from our guest speaker to catch up with those friends from the forums and socials you’ve not seen for a while, and do a bit of mingling and also to pass on your valuable knowledge and experiences to newer members.
