Big Adoption Day

On Wednesday 21 March 2018, adoption agencies across England are invited to open their doors simultaneously to mark this year’s Big Adoption Day.

As ever, the aim of the day is to promote adoption as a permanency option for some of our most vulnerable children and to build on the awareness raised during National Adoption Week.

The theme for 2018 will be Adoption Stories. This will be an opportunity for adopters and adoptees to share and celebrate their positive experiences of adoption and to counter negative depictions of adoption in the media and online. Agencies will be encouraged to invite adoptive parents to speak at information events & to use audio, video or written case studies to give prospective adopters a more rounded picture of the realities of adopting a child or siblings.

You can find details of all Big Adoption Day events, along with information events throughout the year, in our events calendar.
