Exclusive event for our LGBTQ+ adopters and foster carers with Gold memberships

1 in 6 adoptions in England in 2021 were to same-sex couples. But LGBT+ applicants still have an expectation of discrimination. 

News - from NFS & our agency friends

A word from...... James Lawrence, Head of Communications & Engagement

After a difficult couple of years, it's understandable that many of us want to get away on holiday. If you're LGBTQ+ and have adopted children, or are an LGBTQ+ foster carer, holidays can carry extra complications. Will the venue be able to meet your child's needs? How will other families respond to yours? Can you map out your day's schedule if that's what the child you parent or care for needs?

New Family Social holds an annual summer camp every August. We do this to help our LGBTQ+ adopters and foster carers tackle exactly these issues. It brings together hundreds of our LGBTQ+ members and their families. Children can relax seeing other families that look like theirs. There's activities arranged for children of all ages. It's also a great chance for our LGBTQ+ members to expand their friendship network, with members attending from across the UK. With exclusive use of the site in the West Midlands, they can relax knowing they share similar experiences.

Our Gold and Silver members can log in now to find out more information on the camp, including the dates, location and costs.
