National Adoption Week 2020 (12th – 18th October)
At a time when national statistics reveal that black and mixed-heritage children wait longer to be matched with a new adoptive family, this year's National Adoption Week will focus on appealing to potential parents from black African and black Caribbean backgrounds to accurately and positively improve perceptions about adoption.
