NAW 2018 – What makes a good adopter?

September 12, 2018


It seems impossible, but National Adoption Week is just a month away! That means that adoption agencies like us are gearing up for a week of activity, aiming to raise the profile of adoption and the difference it can make to vulnerable children in care.

National Adoption Week 2018 takes place between Monday 15th – Sunday 21st October, and this year the focus is on the adopter.  The campaign will highlight the qualities and attributes that make a great adopter and the joys and challenges adoptive families face.

Throughout the week, SFCS will be sharing a range of stories, social media posts, images and films. We want to highlight what it takes to be a good adopter and encourage more people to consider whether they’ve got what it takes.  So, we’d like to ask for your help!

Can you tell us your views on what makes a good adopter?

  • You could give us a single word or short phrases, such as ‘resilience’, ‘patience’ and ‘good support network’.
  • You could send us a few short sentences to sum up your thoughts.
  • Or if you’re feeling really inspired, our Marketing Officer could talk at greater length with you to come up with a feature piece for use during the week.

We’d love to fill our website, Facebook and Twitter pages with lots of positive messages, and personal contributions like this make a huge difference. If you feel able to contribute to our campaign, please put your thoughts in an email to enquiries@sfcs.org.uk or contact us using the form on our Contact Us page.

Alternatively, you can comment on our Facebook page, or send us a Tweet – short and sweet is totally fine!

Thank you all for your help and support. We look forward to sharing National Adoption Week with you all this autumn.
