CCS Adoption, Action for Children, Bristol City Council, North Somerset Council and South Gloucestershire Council are all coming together for a fact-finding event to answer all of your questions about LGBT fostering and adoption.
Lesbian, gay, bi and trans people can offer just what it takes to be a new forever family for a child to thrive in. It could be the most fulfilling, surprising, challenging and rewarding thing you have ever done.
The event is being held by CCS Adoption, Action for Children, Bristol City Council, North Somerset Council and South Gloucestershire Council who all work across a large area of the South West to provide excellent adoption and fostering services. The objective of the event is to attract more adopters and fostering from the LGBT community and will enable the team to answer any questions that prospective LGBT adopters might have and to give them the opportunity to find out if adoption or fostering is for them.
At the event, prospective parents can meet foster carers, adopters and representatives from the local adoption agencies and get your questions answers by the panel of adopters – you can submit questions before hand and they’ll be read out by the panel chair.
Lynne, who adopted a child with her partner said “We wanted to have a family and we had to decide what route to take. Adoption was first choice for us as fertility would mean one would have the birth child and one wouldn’t so we felt that adoption would be more equal.”
The event has free registration and will run from 7-10pm on Thursday 5th March at @Bristol, Anchor Road in Bristol.
Places are free but limited. To book your place visit http://lgbtadoptionandfosteringevening.eventbrite.co.uk
