National Adoption Week took place from Monday 17th October to Sunday 23rd October 2016.

The need to find families for some of our most vulnerable children remains at the heart of National Adoption Week that aims to encompass all aspects of adoption, to demystify and clarify the adoption process, reflect the challenges of adoptive parenting, share individual stories and to showcase and signpost to best practice.

Councillor Sara Bolton, Cabinet Member for Children and Young People and Safeguarding (pictured) says:

“National Adoption Week gave us the perfect platform to highlight the difficult realities of adoption today.  There is an ever growing need to find loving families for some of Derby’s most vulnerable children – especially those over the age of 4, siblings and children with special needs.  I urge everyone who has ever considered adoption to contact our team here at the Council.”
