We have helped hundreds of people start their family through adoption, including many people who identify as LGBT.
In fact, 1 in 3 of the adoptive parents we have approved in the last year identify as LGBT. And 1 in 4 adoptions has been with LGBT adopters compared to a national average of 1 in 10, so we really understand the difference that LGBT people can make to the lives of children waiting to be adopted.
That’s why we celebrate LGBT Adoption and Fostering Week with New Family Social, the UK network for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) adoptive and foster families.
This year LGBT Adoption and Fostering Week is 5-11 March and as long-standing members of New Family Social, we will be joining them at the flagship Manchester event on Thursday 8 March where you can learn more about adoption. You can register here.
If you can’t make that event have a look at our other regular Exploring Adoption events. You can meet our friendly team, hear from an adopter and learn about the process, the children waiting and the life-long support and guidance we provide. Or call us for an informal discussion on 0300 456 2656.

I am thinking about adopting
Adoption is life-changing and we’re here to support you every step of the way. Our Families that Last team supports you throughout your assessment, giving you training, one-to-one advice and guidance.
All the children placed for adoption with us are unique and have their own skills and talents. They often come from difficult backgrounds and are living with foster carers.
Exploring Adoption events
We hold regular events so that you can meet the team, find out about the process, the children we family find for and the lifelong support we provide.
How it works
Starting the process of adoption can be exciting and daunting. Let us guide you through the process from the first phone call to our lifelong support.
What makes Families that Last unique is the level of support we provide at every stage of your adoption journey. This includes supporting your new family for life, giving you access to a comprehensive package, including award-winning training, which you can tap into whenever you need it.
