The new regional adoption agency for Lancashire and Blackpool is celebrating a successful first six months despite the challenges of coronavirus with a new campaign highlighting the value of bringing a new child into your family.
Adoption Lancashire & Blackpool brings together expertise from both councils to simplify the adoption process, increase the number of adopters, improve the matching processes for children, and provide support for adoptive families. The agency has adapted the way it works to ensure permanent homes are still being found for youngsters in need of a loving home, including the use of digital technology.
Bookable telephone sessions are currently running, instead of the usual face-to-face adoption information events. The sessions are aimed at anyone interested in finding out more about adopting. They offer a chance to have an informal chat, ask questions and discuss options with one of the dedicated team members.
These sessions run every Monday, excluding Bank Holidays, at 2.30pm and each Wednesday at 6.30pm until further notice.
Telephone sessions can be booked by emailing the team at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 0300 123 6727, giving your name, telephone number and the date and time of your chosen session.
Running from Monday 21 September until Sunday 4 October, the #WishForAFamily campaign will encourage anyone wanting to start or grow their family to consider adoption.
