National Adoption Week
Since its launch in 1997, National Adoption Week has gone from strength to strength, reaching people across the UK wanting to know if they can adopt.
The theme of the 2010 campaign was every child deserves a family. During the campaign we encourage people to come forward to adopt the children who wait the longest – older children, children with disabilities, brothers and sisters, and children from some black and minority ethnic backgrounds.
National Adoption Week is so important in reminding people about the backgrounds of the children waiting for adoption and the difference adoption can make to a child’s life.
We know from existing adoptive families that it can be hard work, but the rewards are huge. This is a chance to transform a child’s life for ever.
