Event for York Adopters To Take Place Next Week

York Council 010513

11:45am 7th April 2014

York Council is hosting one of its regular Information Events for anyone interested in finding out more about adoption on Monday 14 April.

The information events, which are help jointly with North Yorkshire County Council and East Riding Council, provide an informal opportunity to anyone interested in adoption to find out more about what’s involved.

The next information session will be held in York on Monday 14 April between 6.30 and 8.30pm. To book a place please call 01904 553525or email adoption@york.gov.uk

Nationally 4,000 children are waiting to find an adoptive family, but for one in four it is likely to remain only a dream.

City of York Council approved 18 new adoptive families in 2013/14 and is looking to approve another 21 in 2014/15.

Councillor Janet Looker, Cabinet Member for Education, Children and Young People, said: “We are looking to recruit people who are willing to offer a child a permanent, loving home, whatever their age, status or situation.

“I’d urge anyone who is considering adoption or who would like to find out more to come along to our next information event.”

City of York Council has joined forces with other local authorities across the region through the Yorkshire and Humberside Adoption Consortium to recruit more adopters. For more information on the ‘Being Family’ campaign visit http://beingfamily.co.uk/
