Bolton Council Search For Potential Adoptive Families in National Adoption Week
1st November 2010
... Comments

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?

  • People over 21
  • There is no upper age limit (but consider providing for a child when it reaches adolescence)
  • Single people
  • Married couples
  • Households and families who have children of their own
  • People in or out of work
  • People who are fairly healthy
  • People of all races, cultures, religions and speaking any language
  • People of different sexual orientations

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
