The New Year, New Family campaign is launched by Adoption Lancashire & Blackpool 

Considering adoption and growing your family in the new year?

This week, the #NewYearNewFamily campaign launches to offer support and advice to families thinking of growing or starting their family through adoption in 2023.

New Year is traditionally a time when people take up that challenge or long considered change so why not take that first step and contact Adoption Lancashire & Blackpool and make 2023 that very special year.

Adoption Lancashire and Blackpool help children of all ages find loving families. This year, we are especially in need of people who could adopt brothers, sisters and older children.

Victoria Gent, Chair of Adoption Lancashire and Blackpool said: “We’d like to take advantage of that new-year, determined frame of mind to especially encourage people to think about a change they could make not just to their own life, but to that of a child in Lancashire or Blackpool.

“We find loving homes for children of all ages who need adopting. However, we especially need homes for brothers and sisters and older children. Our adoption team has a lot of experience in helping find parents for children who need a loving, stable and permanent home and are here to support you every step of the way.”

Adoption is a big life-changing decision and our adoption team offer all the support and training you need and will try to find the best match between your circumstances and the children we have who need a forever home.

We’d like to hear from people who have already adopted, have a family, or are looking into adoption because they are unable to have children of their own.

Anyone who wishes to adopt, regardless of age, marital status, sexuality or gender will be considered. There are no strict rules about whether people should have jobs, their own homes or have their own children.

County Councillor Cosima Towneley, Lancashire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Families said: “If you have been thinking about adoption then there has never been a better time to make that enquiry. Adoptive parents come from all walks of life are all ages and in various loving relationships.  Some have children of their own and want to extend a warm, loving and stable home to a child or sibling group whilst for others this is to be the adventure of a lifetime. You can adopt as long as you are over 21, and live in Lancashire, Blackpool or close by. Adoption Lancashire & Blackpool are an inspiring team who are there to answer your questions and help you take the first steps on a journey that will change yours and children’s lives.”

Cllr Jim Hobson, Blackpool Council Cabinet Member for Children’s Social Care, said: “Adopting a child is one of the most worthwhile things that you can do. It transforms the lives of those it touches which is why we’re asking anyone who has ever thought about adoption to find out more. If you’ve thought about starting or growing your family then please get in touch. We hold regular information events across the county where you can meet our team, find out more about adopting with us and ask any questions you may have.”

If you’re thinking about adoption, we’ll help your family grow and make 2023 a year to remember forever.
