Re­gional adop­tion agency cre­ated

West Sussex County Times - - News -

Fam­i­lies in West Sus­sex able to of­fer adop­tive chil­dren a lov­ing home will now be sup­ported by a newly-cre­ated agency.

Adop­tion South East brings to­gether the ser­vices of West Sus­sex, East Sus­sex, Brighton & Hove as well as Sur­rey.

By com­bin­ing adop­tion ser­vices, the new part­ner­ship hopes to broaden the range and in­crease the num­ber of peo­ple con­sid­er­ing adop­tion as well as draw on best prac­tice and ex­pe­ri­ence from each of the four local au­thor­i­ties.

At any one time there are around 4,000 chil­dren across the UK wait­ing to be adopted and within the South East there are around 120 chil­dren need­ing adop­tive fam­i­lies ev­ery year.

Adop­tion South East is look­ing for peo­ple of dif­fer­ent ages and back­grounds to get in touch if they could con­sider giv­ing a child a per­ma­nent lov­ing fam­ily.
