About National Adoption Week

As in previous years, the need to find families for some of our most vulnerable children remains at the heart of this year’s event.

And here at Devon Adoption and Adopt South West, we are launching our appeal ‘Could you be a parent to a vulnerable child?‘ –  because there are children waiting to be adopted in Devon and Somerset #SupportAdoption.

National Adoption Week 2016 aims to encompass all aspects of adoption, to demystify and clarify the adoption process, reflect the challenges of adoptive parenting, share individual stories, showcase and signpost to best practice and invite anyone whose life or heart is touched by it to #SupportAdoption.
