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.
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.
Family Futures has long argued that there needs to be a regional, integrated adoption service with centres of excellence providing the post placement support and therapeutic intervention that the contemporary adoptive parents and their children, need and deserve. This would ensure that adoptions were not only sustainable but life enhancing . Our only concern is that much of the innovation and quality service provision to date has come from the Voluntary sector and our fear is that regionalisation will mean that only the larger authorities and Voluntary Agencies will be included.
We are regularly holding special information evening events or bespoke sessions that you may find of interest, take a look at our events within our News section by clicking here
Family Futures truly welcomes the Adoption Support Fund (ASF); with adoption support being at the very heart of our business, we are pleased that many families who need that extra support following adoption will now be able to access the services they need more easily in future.

We are happy to welcome Deb Gadsby to the Family Futures team. Deb joins us, as our very own Parent Mentor, who will be on hand to support our adoptive parents on their adoption journey.
