Campaign to encourage Trafford residents to consider adoption
11:00pm Friday 1st November 2013 in News
WITH National Adoption Week on the horizon, Trafford Council is encouraging residents considering it to go to events taking place across the borough.
A week-long radio campaign across Greater Manchester aims to increase adoption awareness through two vans, with one of them present at Trafford’s Adoption Recruitment Day.
The week is from November 4-10 with Trafford’s Adoption Recruitment Day held at ASDA, Hulme on November 7 between 10am - 3pm.
Meanwhile the council itself is set to attend the Adoption 22 Exchange Day at the Place in Manchester from noon to 7pm on November 4. At this event approved adopters can learn more about those children waiting for a new family.
Executive councillor Linda Blackburn said: “There are many children of all ages, who need the support and stability of a family home. Our priority is to find loving long term families. If you think you might have what it takes or would just like to find out more, I would encourage people to attend one of the events.”
Adoption22 is a collaboration between 23 North West Local Authority adoption agencies and voluntary adoption agencies, which organise adoption of children within the region.
With an estimated 4,000 children across the UK in need of adoption, the need for people to come forward and provide a loving and stable home is much needed.
The British Association for Adoption and Fostering organise National Adoption Week and deputy chief executive Alan Wood believes the event can have a huge impact. “Every child has the right to live in a safe, loving, happy home,” he said.
