COVID-19 – Accessing Adoption Information
Amid the current concerns and uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, we wanted to take some time to assure those thinking about adoption that you are still able to access all the necessary information about the adoption process, the children waiting for families and how Families for Children can support you as you take your first steps.

Make a positive change to a child's life today

FFC Logo People

Families for Children have always specialised in placing the most vulnerable children with secure and loving adoptive families. These children specifically include older children (age 4 and up), sibling groups who need to stay together, and children with additional needs.

Search FFC

It is these children we search long and hard to find families for. We are focussing our search for adoptive families for this group of children and urge anyone who has considered adoption to come and learn more about adopting a 'priority child' and contact us today.

Our Patrons tell you why they are happy to support Families for Children and the work we do.

“Our Social Worker was a tower of strength, always on the end of the phone, visiting, often with calming words of advice.”

FFC Family

"We will always be grateful for what the Agency have done for us, and will probably continue to do, to support our family. We feel incredibly privileged…"

"Adoption means that you grew in your mummy’s heart instead of her tummy."

A six year old adopted child

"I think the best thing my mum has done was to adopt me and my brother. It makes me feel proud. She decided to adopt instead of having her own child."

A very special 10 year old boy

"At my birthday party my friends gave me money instead of presents. I want you to use this money for other children to find forever mummies and daddies."

A child adopted through FFC

“I have so much more understanding of where my child is coming from – what might be going on for them and tools to help them.”

A adopted parent on our therapeutic training

“Immediately changed our lives, can try things out straight away – has benefited the whole family.”

A adopted parent on our support services

"Thank you so much for a fantastic day at the South Devon Family Adventure Day.

We ALL loved it! The setting is beautiful; barn, camp fire area, pizza oven and land around fantastic. 

The children really took to Jon (Outdoor Centre Manager), my son said to me yesterday that he was a 'really good guy'!!

Can't wait for the next one!!"
