Big Adoption Day 29 March 2017

14 February 2017
Big Adoption Day
Shape 1 Shape 2

Last year, Adoption Matters, along with the majority of voluntary adoption agencies across England, were involved in a project intended to underline the importance of our work in finding and supporting families for children in care and working in partnership with our colleagues in local authorities.  As part of the initiative, agencies across the country opened their doors to enquiring adopters to host simultaneous information evenings on Big Adoption Day, to reinforce the message that adopters continue to be needed for our most vulnerable children in the care system.


We are delighted that Big Adoption Day will run again this year on Wednesday 29 March 2017 supported by the  CVAA. and First4Adoption.


There aren’t many decisions that will change your life forever; but adopting a child is one of them.


If you’re considering adoption or just want to find out a bit more about what we do, why not come along to one of our Big Adoption Day information evenings or drop in events.


We are holding free information events in the following locations:


Adoption Matters, 10 Cathedral Close, Blackburn,  BB1 5AA. Click here for directions
Time: 6:00pm


Blue Coat Building, Upper Northgate Street, Chester, CH1 4EE.  Click here for directions
Time: 6:00pm


Adoption Matters, No 1. Aire Street, Leeds, LS1 4PR   Click here for directions
Time: Lunchtime drop in between 12 noon and 3:00pm


At these informal events we will give you some more information about our agency, the adoption process and different choices of adoption, including our Concurrent Planning Service, Fostering to Adopt and discuss the award winning support we offer to our families and children through the Centre for Adoption Support.  Our staff will be available to answer your questions.
