National Adoption Week
National Adoption Week 2019 will take place from the 14th to 20th October. As ever the campaign will aim to find homes for the children waiting. The focus for 2019 will be on the ‘priority’ children who wait the longest for a loving home – those in a sibling group, children from Black and Minority Ethnic backgrounds, older children and those with complex health needs or those that are disabled. During the week we will be working with the Guardian to appeal to all individuals to come forward to consider these priority children.
This year the national campaign is being driven by a cross-sector steering group made up of representatives from statutory and voluntary adoption agencies together with CVAA, Adoption UK, CoramBAAF and First4Adoption. This is a new and exciting approach seeking to promote the benefits of all adoption agencies.
