How your money builds families

As a charity there is always a demand on our resources. From supporting prospective adopters and foster carers, to taking phone calls from parents who need support for themselves and their children.  We always strive to be here for them.

We also ensure that our member adoption and foster agencies have access to the best training so that their staff offer a welcoming and encouraging space to LGBT+ adopters and foster carers.

Your donation helps both adults and children as we work hard to assist more children moving in to safe, stable, loving and caring homes.

I'm proud to tell you that your donations have and continue to drive change. In ten years we have seen adoptions to same-sex couples grow from practically nothing to 1 child in every 7 adopted finding security and love in an LGBT+ family.

We have more to do, help us build and nurture families.

Thank you.

Your support has made a real difference and helped children waiting in the care system to find loving and supportive families. In 2012, we launched our national LGBT+ Adoption and Fostering Week Campaign. We've encouraged, promoted and supported LGBT+ families from all backgrounds, orientations and identities to come forward and provide stability to vulnerable children. We're estimating that 2,000 children in the last eight years have moved from care into LGBT+ families because of the work we do.

We're proud of our commitments and your continued support.







LGBT+ families are more likely to adopt & foster sibling groups, older children & children with additional needs.


It takes money to effect change & to support LGBT+ families through approval & once their families arrive. 


Your generosity means that you directly help LGBT+ people fulfil their dreams. You will make a difference.
