Working in HR & want to provide Adoption Information to your employees?
Given that Adoption has been receiving a lot of interest in the press recently and there has been legislative changes affecting adoption rights; we have compiled a useful presentation (click here) aimed at HR Managers who would like to provide their employees greater transparency and information on Adoption.
If you work in Human Resources and would like to partner with Family Futures to be your Adoption information provider, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Could you become a Family Futures Adoption Ambassador?
We are looking to create our own network of Family Futures Adoption Ambassadors, to help spread the word about how positively life changing adoption can be when you get the right support. If you are interested in becoming an Ambassador or would like to find out more information, click here.
Dispelling Myths around “Harder to Place” Children
There’s been a lot in the press over the past week due to the governments pledge to invest £30m to speed up finding adoptive parents for children in care in England. The money will be provided to local authorities to cover costs they incur finding families beyond their geographical borders.
Of course we welcome this injection of money and are pleased to see that adoption is receiving public attention that helps break down some of the stigmas surrounding it. But at the same time, we believe it is important to dispel some of the myths around the topic of adopting older children, who sadly by definition are referred to as “harder to place” and are the unfortunate ones who are likely to wait in care for longer.
