Adopt a child
Some children and young people cannot grow up with their birth families for a variety of reasons.
People like you open your homes and create a new family where these children can grow in a loving, secure home.
Many children needing adoption have been abused, either physically or sexually, while others have been neglected and not given love and stimulation. As a result, many children are angry or confused about what is happening to them.
They need a great deal of love and attention to help them adjust to stable family life and grow into happy, confident adults. We will prepare you with the skills to adopt children who have been abused or neglected, and support you throughout the process.
Both during and after National Adoption Week, Action for Children is urging people to consider adopting the UK's most vulnerable children in need of homes. We are asking people to 'not rule them out' and adopt children who are older, from black, minority ethnic and mixed parentage families, sibling groups and children with learning difficulties and physical disabilities.
