Why Choose Family for me?

Family for Me is an innovative project designed to seek out adoptive families for Children who wait the longest to include sibling groups, older children and children with additional needs.  We search for families from outside the pool of already approved adopters and those within.

Through the use of good honest child profiles, we aim to bring the children to life with real anecdotes about what life is like living with them, from those who know them best. We will endeavour to find people who will be willing to be assessed for specific children whose story may touch them in some way and reach them using our dedicated website, online media and targeted PR.?

We aim to reach those who may not have considered adoption as a way to grow their own family, people who may have their own birth children who are growing up, or who have experienced looking after children, but not yet considered giving one a permanent home.

We work closely with the child social worker from initial referral through assessment to potential placement ensuring the family will be a match.

We are supported by the services of Families for Children who have a dedicated social worker with experience in supporting placements for children who wait the longest

This service is currently offered FREE OF CHARGE - we would welcome the chance to talk to you about your specific requirements.
