Researchers at leading charity, Penny Appeal, have been working with over 60 Islamic scholars, community leaders and sector professionals to produce the UK’s first Islamic guidance document on adoption and fostering.
A spokesperson at Penny Appeal commented, “The guide covers the faith’s perspective and the virtues of adoption and fostering. Tailored speciﬁcally to the Muslim community, it helps highlight the position of the Muslim faith for those who are unsure about becoming foster carers or adopters.”
Jo-Ann Swanston-King, National Manager – Families at Last at After Adoption, commented, “We know there are over twice as many children waiting in care to be adopted than there are adopters waiting to adopt.
“We need people from diverse backgrounds who are willing and able to give these vulnerable children a loving and stable home. This guide will be invaluable to those in the Muslim community who have questions about whether or not adoption is right for someone of their faith.”
