LGBTQ+ Adoption & Fostering Week is a nationwide campaign which is organised by New Family Social and St Andrew’s have been a Member of New Family Social for many years now. This year’s theme is #DifferentTogether.

What we can tell you about adoption and fostering at the open day
If you are LGBTQ+ and thinking about adopting or fostering a child, then you are invited to go along on the day and speak to one of the charity’s social workers who will be able to tell you:

1. What it’s like to adopt or foster a child
2. Who can adopt
3. Who can foster
4. About the adoption process
5. About the fostering process
6. About the support available to you if you adopt or foster through us

You can ask any questions you like. Whatever stage you are at in your adoption or fostering journey, St Andrew’s can help you.

The charity is a voluntary adoption agency which can search the whole of the UK to find the right child for you – they are not limited to looking in just one local authority area.

St Andrew’s are the oldest adoption agency still in operation in Scotland which celebrated its centenary last year. They have helped many families in Scotland to adopt and foster who live within a 60 mile radius of Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Elgin.
