Event description

Description

To celebrate National LGBT Fostering and Adoption week 5-11th March 2018 we are holding an information session for anyone from the LGBT community in Bristol, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset and surrounding areas who are interested in fostering or adopting.

Action for Children, CCS Adoption, North Somerset Council and Bristol City Council will be hosting the event jointly and after the presentation you will have the chance to speak to agencies individually. You will also hear from experienced LGBT foster carers and adopters.

We know from experience that LGBT people often come to adoption and fostering with an open mind and real enthusiasm, as it’s often their first choice for growing their family. Many of our children have had a very traumatic start to life, and we’ve seen them thrive with their new parents. You can be single, over 40 and you don’t need to own your own home to consider fostering or adoption. We need people with stability, love and resourcefulness who can who can help a child or children with whatever needs they may have.

We will explore with you the children who need families, the process of assessment and the support you receive during and after assessment.

We look forward to seeing you on the evening!
