People in the North West are being invited to find out all about modern adoption as National Adoption Week kicks off on Monday 18th October.
We are so proud of Elaine, who has been awarded ‘Above & Beyond Social Worker 2021’ by New Family Social!
Karen, our Head of Service, and our adopters Heather & Emma will be on BBC One’s North West Today and ITV's Granada Reports, 21st September, talking about the current #YouCanAdopt Black Adopters Campaign and raising awareness around the need to encourage more Black adopters to come forward!
A national campaign has been relaunched this month to encourage more black adults to consider adoption, as figures show black children are waiting longer to be adopted.
In 2020 1 in 6 adoptions in England were to same-sex couples, and with the Manchester Pride Festival due to take place over the August Bank Holiday weekend, we thought it would be a great time to talk about adoption and LGBT+.
A new nationwide campaign #YOUCANADOPT, has launched to encourage those considering adoption to think about adopting brothers and sisters together.
Adoption Now's Virtual Brothers & Sisters Information Event is coming soon and we can't wait speak to everyone!
Adopter Stories by Adoption Now podcasts are available to stream or download on our website!
Whilst we are in lockdown and the pressures that go with it, we are the first to acknowledge that this can be a very trying time for families.
We just wanted to share some tips for parents who may be anxious about #COVID20
