LGBTQ+ in England & considering adoption? You need to read this list [2 November, 2022]

2 Nov 2022 08:39 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

LGBTQ+ in England, exploring adopting and looking at agencies? If an agency you’re considering isn’t on the list below, you may want to ask it why. 

Since the summer, senior leaders from across the adoption sector in England have attended training to develop their agencies’ understanding of the issues LGBTQ+ adoption applicants and adoptive parents face. The training is part of a package of work for the National Adoption Recruitment Strategy Group. The course is open to and free for senior leaders delivering services to adoption agencies in England.

Some 14 half-day sessions were organised to deliver the first half of the training, which is a two part course. The first wave of training sessions concludes later in November, with the second half of the training course due later in 2022 and early 2023.

Among the regional and voluntary adoption agencies participating in the training are:
