LGBT Adoption & Fostering Week

LGBT Adoption & Fostering Week is run by New Family Social, the UK support group for LGBT adopters and foster carers. Each spring, agencies across the UK hold events specifically for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender prospective parents.

You can find information all-year-round about adoption events happening in your area, as well as agencies that subscribe to New Family Social, on their website or clicking below:

One thing that unites New Family Social members is the pride they have in their families. If you’re lesbian, gay, bi or trans and have embarked on adoption or fostering you’ll know how hard it can be. So this year’s theme is ‘Pride in Our Family.’ It’s a fantastic opportunity to share the highs and lows of our stories with a wider audience, and help other LGBT people decide whether parenting through adoption or fostering is for them.
