We are thrilled to announce today – 11 March, the last day of LGBT+ Adoption & Fostering Week – a new all Wales partnership with New Family Social.
This strategic relationship will mean that LGBTQ+ applicants to a Welsh regional or voluntary adoption services can apply to access New Family Social’s Gold memberships free of charge.
It applies to all LGBTQ+ adopters who adopted or are supported through a Welsh regional adoption service and/or a voluntary adoption agency in Wales and to all future LGBTQ+ applicants taking this route.
This is the first such country-wide partnership with New Family Social in any of the UK’s nations.
It provides LGBTQ+ adopters and adoption applicants a consistent level of peer-support services.
Adoption social workers across Wales will also benefit from dedicated support and access to the latest good practice when working with LGBTQ+ people, developed by New Family Social.
