Families for Children Trust

Adoption Support

Each year Families for Children need to raise £300,000 to support our adoptive families. We find adoptive parents for children classed as 'harder to place' eg children with extra needs, older children & siblings and provide our 'Forever Policy' of support. Your donation will keep a family together

Situation

Nationally one in ten adoptions will break down - this is because of the tremendous needs of the children being placed for adoption; with many having suffered some form of abuse. At Families for Children we work with our families and consequently our breakdown rate is one in thirty-three. We know that the support we provide for our families keep them together. As our Patron, Caroline Quentin, says "...they (adopters) will have a constant support if they do successfully adopt through FFC".

Solution

We provide on-going adoption support for as long as it is needed - even into adulthood.
