Barnardo’s has supported the LGBT+ community for decades.

We proudly believe that any loving person can make a wonderful adoptive parent to a child in need.

Whatever your sexual orientation, you can foster or adopt with Barnardo's

That's why, this March, we're excited to celebrate LGBT+ Fostering and Adoption Week.

Whether you're new to the idea of fostering and adoption and want some more information, or you're ready to make an enquiry, we've created a space for resources to help you. 

From explaining the different types of fostering and adoption available, to sharing real stories from our LGBT+ foster families and adoptive parents, to busting some myths around what fostering an adoption involves, we want you to feel empowered and supported, whatever stage of the journey you're on.
