We'll be celebrating memories with the launch of our Adoption Week campaign (10-16 September 2018) - because we believe that no matter what a child’s background, capabilities or age is; having positive memories as a child is a vital part of growing up.
Some of our amazing celebrity supporters who have either been adopted or have adopted have all shared fond family photographs to help raise awareness of the need for more adopters, including:
To help us spread the word, we want you to get involved too by sharing a childhood photograph of yourself on social media using the hashtag #ISupportAdoption and tagging @barnardos.
And if you feel that you can adopt a child and offer them a happy and stable home, we want to hear from you. Simply get in touch with our friendly team and together, we can help more vulnerable children find loving families.
We know that adoption is a lifelong journey and that's why we support our adopters every step of the way, during the application, assessment and in the years that follow.
Watch some of our incredible adopters talk about the support they received from Barnardo’s during their journey.
You can find more information about the support we offer on our Support for Adopters page.
We help everyone who is involved in an adoption process, from adoptive parents to children, adults adopted as children, birth parents and relatives. Our Birth Family Member Support Service can help you if a child or children in your family is going to be placed for adoption.
