Families For Children closure

Adopt South West is very sad to hear that our local adoption agency, Families for Children, is closing at the end of August 2022.

Read their statement here: https://familiesforchildren.org.uk/

We are sorry to lose the long standing relationship after so many years working together in partnership across the south-west.

We are working with Families for Children who have told the staff and adopters and will everything we can to support adopters and their families during this period.

This will be an emotional time for all involved from Families for Children, and at Adopt South West we want to do everything we can, as an adoption agency, to support the people involved.

There are discussions taking place as to what support could look like and how the support can be actioned, and we will keep people informed as we know more ourselves.

In the meantime, if you have any individual queries about this, please contact our advice and support line on 0345 155 1076, or email adoptsouthwestsupport@devon.gov.uk in the first instance.
