It’s LGBT+ Adoption and Fostering week 2023

Adoption can seem like a daunting and exciting experience, but last year over 24% of approved adopters were part of the LGBT+ community.


But, we still have lots of children that need loving families.

Elaine Jamieson, Recruitment and Assessment manager stated ‘We are extremely proud of the diverse range of people that choose to adopt with us. We offer free membership for New Family Social, they connect over 5,000 adopters across the UK within the LGBT+ community. Adopting a child can be challenging and we know that this extra support will help our families thrive.’

Some of the benefits of adopting a child with us as an LGBT+ applicant are:
  • Members of New Family Social – the UK’s peer support network for LGBT+ adopters
  • The membership provides free access to all their online support events
  • The membership encourages peer support from 5,000 adopters across the UK
Some more benefits of adopting with us are:
  • We are more like to match with babies and young children
  • We have a dedicated family-finding team. This means our process can be quicker than other agencies
