Over 80% of the children currently waiting to be adopted in Lancashire and Blackpool are brothers and sisters.
Brothers and sisters share a special bond and keeping them together provides ongoing companionship and emotional support throughout their lives. Many of these children have been through difficult experiences and having a brother or sister by their side can help them to feel safe and settle quickly into their new home.
If you think you could offer brothers and sisters a safe and happy loving home, then
We understand it is a big life-changing decision. Adopted children can sometimes bring their own challenges, so adopting a family group could feel daunting, but support is available. Our experienced team are on hand to support you from the initial enquiry and right through your adoption journey.
The biggest benefit for the children is that they are able to stay with their brothers and sisters – often this is the only family unit they may have. And, the time spent matching adopters is significantly shorter than the wait to be matched to an infant or individual child.
