This week is National Adoption Week, 1st-7th November and Bolton Council are making a plea for more potential adoptive parents to come forward and give a young person a much needed home.
There is a shortage in Bolton of adoptive parents which means many children are in limbo with no permanent home to call their own.
Adoption is when people offer a permanent family to a child who cannot be brought up by their own families. it is a legal process where the child takes the name of the new family and that becomes part of that family. This campaign is being supported by Bolton comedian Dave Spikey who is giving praise to the adoption team in Bolton and also the families that open up their homes to a child
Who Can Adopt?
Bolton Adoption Service will be holding an open meeting on Wednesday 24th November 6pm-8pm for those who feel they have an interest in adoption. Simply come along to the meeting or contact 01204 337480 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
