National Adoption Week takes place 16th to 22nd October 2017

The need to find families for some of our most vulnerable children remains at the heart of this year’s event. The children who wait the longest for an adoptive family are a priority and this year our focus is on keeping brothers and sisters together.

Whether you’re an adopter, an adoptee, an adoption professional or you’d just like to show your support, there are plenty of ways to get involved with National Adoption Week:

Download a placard, take a selfie or a photo and share during NAW

The theme of the week is siblings so during the week we invite all to share photos of their brothers and sisters using hashtag #LoveMyBrother #LoveMySister

Share your story with others – join our adoption champions

Come to an event – we will be adding information as new events are confirmed

Please encourage your colleagues, family and friends to get involved. If you live in England please visit First4Adoption for all the National Adoption Week activity.
