As part of National Adoption Week (14 to 20 October), Doncaster Children’s Services Trust is on the lookout for more people willing to become the forever family for a child

At any one time there are around 20 children in Doncaster who cannot live with their birth parents and who are looking for a permanent, loving home.

The Trust’s Adoption Service is to hold an information drop-in on Wednesday 16 October at the Dome, to which anyone thinking about starting out on their adoption journey can call and have a chat any time between 5pm and 8pm.

Doncaster Children’s Services Trust Adoption team will be hosting a drop-in event at Doncaster Dome on Monday 11 November.

The team will be at the Dome from 5pm to 8pm to answer all your questions about becoming an adoptive parent.

Speaking about the need for adoptive parents to get in touch, Adoption Team Manager Claire Holmes said: “At any one time in Doncaster there are around 20 children who cannot be brought up by their birth parents and who need a loving and stable family home.

“Volunteers are the best. People don’t understand or realise how much time and effort it takes to make their young person feel safe and trust them.”
