Adoption is a way of providing the secuirty of a new family when it is not possible for a child to be brought up by his/her own parents.
Families for Children are committed to providing adoption support to children and families, and aim to treat prospective adopters with respect and honesty while making the process of assessment an open and comfortable experience.
There are eligibility criteria but no 'blanket bans' on the grounds of age, weight, appearance, disability, sexuality, income or marital status.
ALL applications are considered on merit. Children who are adopted come from diverse backgrounds and some have diverse needs.
