LGBT Adoption & Fostering Week returns to the UK, from 7-13 March.
Now in its fifth year the week is a fantastic opportunity for lesbian, gay, bi and trans prospective parents to find out more about the fostering and adoption processes.
Agencies across the country organise information sessions specifically for LGBT potential applicants – in 2015 there were 55 such events, backed by social media campaigns that engaged 9.4 million people. And LGBT people are responding – in 2015, 1 in 12 adoptions in England were to same-sex couples.
