Description

The improving LGBT adoption conference: good practice training and practical support


Last year, one in ten adoptions in England was to a same-sex couple. As the leading support network for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) adopters, New Family Social is offering agencies in the emerging Regional Adoption Agencies the opportunity to attend the Improving LGBT Adoption conference for your region.

With support from the Department for Education, New Family Social’s Improving LGBT Adoption project offers a range of tools to support adoption agencies. These will help your agency increase its awareness of the issues facing LGBT adopters through the adoption process and during post adoption support. Research shows LGBT people are highly likely to consider adopting children often considered ‘harder to place’, such as sibling groups, older children and children with physical and mental health issues.

Free to attend, the Improving LGBT Adoption Conference covers a range of issues including improving LGBT inclusion, the strengths of LGBT adopters and challenging existing attitudes. The conference is an invaluable experience to help you and your teams engage with, and support, LGBT adopters through their journey into parenthood and beyond.

Attend this event to hear senior practitioners from the Demonstrator Projects in your area. Learn from their experience of the challenges they face, as well as real-life case studies where LGBT adopters share their stories.

Full programme, including speakers and timings, to be announced.

Running alongside the main conference, New Family Social will host a senior level discussion alongside the Demonstrator Projects. This is aimed at policy makers and influencers leading organisational change in a new era for adoption and children’s services.


New Family Social reserves the right to make any necessary changes to the conference programme, venue or date.
