Adoption & Fostering Support Week for LGBT+ parents has been running all week from the 20th - 24th September 2021. The campaign is led by New Family Social, the UK's charity for LGBT+ adopters and foster carers.
James Lawrence, New Family Social's Head of Communications & Engagement said: 'Adoption and fostering are both parenting journeys. Every parent needs support at some point, but LGBT+ adopters and foster carers can face unique challenges. This campaign will focus on education and contact - two of the most frequently raised issues by our LGBT+ adopter and foster carer members.'
At Adoption Now we pride ourselves on the support that we offer everyone who comes to us. From the start, right through to being matched with a child or children and then into family life; we are going to be with you on EVERY step of your adoption journey!
And so, with that we are so proud to say that Elaine, a member of our Post Adoption Support team has just received the accolade of Above & Beyond Social Worker 2021 from New Family Social!
HUGE congratulations to Elaine!
