Who we are & what we do

Support for LGBTQ+ families that adopt or foster

If you're LGBTQ+ in the UK then we're here for you.

We're a UK charity, led by LGBTQ+ adopters and foster carers. New Family Social exists to help you decide if adoption or fostering is right for you and then support you on your journey to becoming parents and carers.  We also work with agencies to develop their services to be as LGBTQ+ inclusive and friendly as possible.

We aim to make the pool of available parents as wide as possible for the many children in care. There's an ever increasing need for more LGBTQ+ people to explore both adoption and fostering.

You might have just started to think about your options.  What will adoption mean for you? Can you offer the support needed from a foster carer? How will an agency treat me? What age children can I give a home to?

We're here to help. There's probably a supportive adoption or fostering team near you that's a member of New Family Social.

Our LGBTQ+ members seek support anonymously from others in the same situation, offer wise words and attend our exclusive regional & national events.
