DCN Spring Conference

An In-person meet-up for donor conception families and the wider community

Join us for our annual DCN member conference in North London on 4 May 2024! The event is a wonderful opportunity to connect with others and to hear from knowledgeable and inspiring speakers.

Who should attend this event?

  • Parents of donor conceived children: If you’ve had children this is a chance to meet other parents, to share experiences and get support. This is a family event so we provide childcare and activities for children up to 12 years to make it possible for you all to attend the day.
  • DC teens: children aged 13-17 can join a creative session exploring donor conception through writing, collage or video making. If your teen would like to attend the conference but not join the creative session, please email us on enquiries@dcnetwork.org
  • DC adults 18 years and over: DC adults are most welcome to join us and meet with others in the community.
  • Professionals in the field: Please do join us for an informative and thought-provoking event.

Not had children yet?

You’re welcome to join us at this conference but do be aware that the content is aimed mostly at those who already have donor conceived children. You might therefore prefer to join our Getting Started event on 13 April instead, as this is designed exclusively for people thinking about using a sperm or egg donor and are at the start of their journey to parenthood. Find out more about Getting Started.
