Welcome to Family Care!
Family Care is over 130 years old and prides itself in its personal and unique approach to adoption, safeguarding and family support. If you are looking to adopt a child or children, you have certainly come to the right place! Our small team of adoption social workers have over 150 years’ experience in adoption between them and are passionate about finding the right families for the right children. They offer so much more than you might expect. From having a dedicated social worker throughout your adoption journey, to the delivery of training, bespoke advice and support after a child has been placed with their new family, the service that you will receive from Family Care is second-to-none.
Our safeguarding and family support services are also unique and I would encourage you to read more about what we can offer by clicking on the relevant buttons below, or reading some of our previous newsletters and annual reports that are available in the ‘news’ section.
If you have any questions about adoption, safeguarding or family support, please contact us. Our staff are approachable, friendly and knowledgeable and will be able to support you with any questions that you may have.
