Families for Children Trust is a Specialist Adoption Agency and charitable trust based in the South West.
At Families for Children we believe that the best place for a child to grow is with their birth families. However where this is not possible we endeavour to find new adoptive families who can offer them a stable and loving home.
All our services are free of charge
Families for Children existed for many years as a joint venture operated by the Exeter Diocesan Board for Christian Care and the Plymouth Diocesan Catholic Children’s Society. In 2003 the agency became a separate charity in its own right.
We hold adoption files from 1948 for the Society which was then known as the Plymouth Diocesan Children’s Rescue Society and from 1954 for the Exeter Diocesan Board for Christian Care.
Although we are a Christian agency we are pleased to welcome enquiries from other faiths and cultures and as a Christian organisation concerned with the welfare of children, parents and families, our attitudes and practices are shaped by Christian values and we therefore aim to uphold the importance of love, family life and the dignity of each individual.
