Finding a forever family

3 February 2022

This BBC short documentary on adoption looks at three families who have adopted children who wait longer for adoption.  Children who wait longer often fall into one or more than the following categories:

  • Aged 4 years or over
  • Sibling groups of 2 or more
  • Children with additional needs
  • Children from a Black, Asian or other ethnic background

The documentary is available to watch on BBC iPlayer here until November 2022.

The documentary features families and members of the National Adoption Recruitment Steering Group (NARSG) who co-ordinate national recruitment campaigns such as #YouCanAdopt. Cara (pictured above) and her family, also featured in the national #YouCanAdopt campaign. Adoption Matters is also a member of the NARSG.
