LGBT Adoption and Fostering Week

Today is the start of LGBT Adoption and Fostering Week. Organised by New Family Social, the week helps encourage fostering and adoption among LGBT people and to draw attention to the wide range of support and resources on offer.

1 in 8 adoptions in Wales and 1 in 10 adoptions in England were to same-sex couples last year. The need for adoptive families and foster carers remains huge with record numbers of looked-after children needing secure and stable family environments. There are information events for LGBT in London and Manchester this week, as well as information and features across the New Family Social website and Twitter page. Let’s hope the week is a great success.

While you’re here, why not take a look at our infographic on alternative families through the years available here.
