Big Adoption Day 2018

7 March 2018
Shape 1 Shape 2

On Wednesday 21 March 2018, adoption agencies across England are invited to open their doors simultaneously to mark this year’s Big Adoption Day.  The Day, now in it’s third year,  is a CVAA initiative supported by First4Adoption  to promote the need for adopters for our most vulnerable children.


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 events.  The theme this year is ‘Adoption Stories’ and our adopters will be at the events to share their own stories together with some video clips:
