Cambridgeshire County Council is looking for energetic, lively and caring adoptive families to help give children who’ve had a difficult start in life a place to call home.
In support of National Adoption Week which takes place from 14-20 October 2019, the Adoption team will be hosting an information session to talk about adoption.
The information session takes place on:
- Thursday 17 October: 5.30pm – 7pm Shire Hall Cambridge CB3 0AP.
This year the national campaign is being driven by a cross-sector steering group made up of representatives from statutory and voluntary adoption agencies together with CVAA, Adoption UK, CoramBAAF and First4Adoption and aims to find homes for the children waiting.
The focus is to find loving homes for sibling groups, children from Black and Minority Ethnic backgrounds, older children, and those with complex health needs or disabilities.
Councillor Simon Bywater, Chairman of the Children and Young People Committee, said, “In Cambridgeshire there is a particular need to find adoptive families for children across our county.
“For those children who cannot live with their birth parents, it is vital we find them permanent new homes as quickly as possible.
“Every child deserves a loving, stable family so if you think there is room in your life and your heart for a child, then come and talk to us.
“Our supportive and skilled adoption team will support and guide you right from the early stages this way we know every child is matched to the right family for them.”
As long as you are over 21 have the love, energy and commitment which a child needs, then we want to hear from you.
If you wish to attend please contact The Adoption Service by phone on our number 0300 123 1093 or by email at [email protected] so that we can confirm the best time and let you know further details.
