Information available for those interested in adopting

During National Adoption Week (November 3-9) and beyond, Bromley’s Adoption Service is calling for would–be adopters to phone in for a chat to find out more about what’s involved.

Bromley wants to find as many people as possible who are interested in starting an adoptive family to answer their questions, dispel any myths and help them towards the next stage of the process. There are already a number of children and groups of brothers and sisters in Bromley waiting for loving adoptive families.

These children need caring and understanding families to look after and care for them as they grow up and recover from any past difficulties in their lives.

As well as the opportunity to phone, Bromley’s experienced team would be happy to welcome those considering adoption to an informal information session held in partnership with Bexley Council at their civic offices on 2 Watling Street, Bexleyheath, DA6 7AT between 10am and 1pm on November 15.

Executive member for care services, Robert Evans said: “Bromley is proud that we quite quickly embraced a new two stage process for people interested in becoming adoptive parents and shortened the time it takes to complete to just six months.

“We recognise there are many questions that spring to mind when people think about adopting a child - it is a big step for family and child alike. Our team would like interested people to come forward either by phone or face to face so they can give a much better understanding of what it’s like to adopt.”
