Adoption & Fostering Support Week to return September 2021 [31 August 2021]

31 Aug 2021 10:09 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Adoption & Fostering Support Week for LGBT+ parents will return from 20 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.'

The campaign will include specifically curated content for LGBT+ adopters and foster carers, the results of New Family Social's annual poll of its members and support from adoption and fostering agencies across the UK.

Among those agencies we know that'll take part in 2021....

If you're LGBT+ and considering going on your adoption or fostering journey with an agency not on the list below, you may want to ask it why it's not backing a campaign about supporting LGBT+ adopters or foster carers. All of the agencies listed offer dedicated support to their LGBT+ adopters and foster carers through their membership of New Family Social.
