LGBT+ people are being encouraged to consider adoption during this; LGBT+ Adoption and Fostering Week.

Adoption@Heart, the Regional Adoption Agency for the Black Country, is backing the national campaign which returns for its 10th year and runs until Sunday (13 March). It calls for LGBT+ people to #BeTheChange and consider either adoption or fostering as a route to parenting.

The UK’s leading police dog charity fears families who take on retired canine heroes may be left with no choice but to give their beloved pets up due to ‘alarming soaring costs’. The Thin Blue Paw Foundation – a charity that supports, celebrates and protects working and retired service dogs across the UK – has called on the public to help them ensure the country’s retired canine heroes have access to medication, therapy and life-saving treatment when they need it. 

The Fostering for Wolverhampton team will be celebrating LGBT+ Fostering and Adoption Week 2022, beginning on Wednesday (2 March), and want to hear from people who are LGBT+ and interested in becoming foster parents. Fostering for Wolverhampton welcomes LGBT+ potential parents and will support their application to foster. People can find out more at an online information event, the next of which takes place on Thursday 3 March at 6.30pm.

Wolverhampton has officially thanked dozens of dedicated foster carers for the vital work they do looking after vulnerable children and young people in the city.

The City of Wolverhampton Council's Fostering for Wolverhampton team recognised the service of their foster carers at the ‘For the Love of Fostering’ celebration evening at Molineux Stadium earlier this month.
