Barnardo’s proudly supports the #YouCanAdopt campaign
You Can Adopt has launched a new campaign highlighting the circle of support available to adopters.
Over half of children (59%) waiting for permanent homes come from certain groups where it takes an average of eight months longer to be adopted. This includes children aged five or over, those with additional and/or complex needs brother and sister groups, and those from Black and mixed heritage backgrounds.
Find out more about adopting with Barnardo's below, or visit the You Can Adopt website to find out more about the children who wait the longest.

Whatever their start, we’re here for their future.
We believe in the potential of children, regardless of their circumstances, and that they all deserve a loving family.
We're looking for people to make a positive difference to the lives of children and young people who need a loving family. Whether you’re single or married, whatever your age, ethnicity, religion, culture, background or gender, a homeowner or renting, straight, lesbian, gay, trans or bisexual, it doesn’t matter.
With more than 100 years of experience at finding children forever families, we use our expertise as the UK’s largest voluntary adoption agency to provide a tailored service, matching children with the right adoptive families while our friendly and expert team support our parents and are with them all every step of the way.
When you make an enquiry about adopting with us, you are not making any commitments. A member of our team will call you back to talk you through the adoption process, answer any questions you may have and ask you a few questions about yourself and your motivation to adopt.
