Diagrama is joining forces with adoption agencies to raise awareness of the need for adopters to come forward. New research shows that the South East has more than 2 times as many children awaiting adoptive families as there are adopters. The figures, from the national adoption information service, First4Adoption, reveal the region currently has 580 children waiting to be adopted and just 250 families approved to adopt.
Catherine Moore, Diagrama Adoption and Fostering Manager says, “This research highlights the ongoing and urgent need to find adoptive families for children who desperately need them. Adoption transforms the lives of those it touches and this National Adoption Week we’re asking anyone who has ever thought about adoption to find out more. Whether you’re married, single, LGBTQ or heterosexual, if you think you might be able to give a vulnerable child a loving home, please get in touch with us”.
This Adoption Week, Diagrama will be sharing our new Foster to Adopt Video which shows our amazing adopters Rupert and Nicky’s journey to become a family, also the Diagrama Team will be attending a DfE Adoption event to share best practice and we will be sharing details of our next Information event taking place on the 12th November.
If you’d like an adoption information pack, attend one of our information events or arrange for a home visit, please contact us today - 0800 802 1910.
