National Adoption Week runs from October 19 to October 25

Bromley Council’s Adoption Service is giving information to would be adopters ahead of National Adoption Week later this month.

The information event will be held at Bromley Central Library, on October 19 from 12-2pm and is aiming to dispel myths about adoption as well providing information.

Executive member for care services Robert Evans said: “The theme of National Adoption Week is ‘Too Old at 4’. We recognise the needs of older children in particular who are just waiting for loving families to look after them.

“In Bromley, the process to adopt can take just six months meaning children don’t have to wait too long, as long as the right would-be adopters are available. This event will help people decide if adoption is for them, so if you want to find out more, please drop by.”

National Adoption Week runs from October 19 to October 25.
