Royal borough residents are being encouraged to find out about adoption later this month.

The Big Adoption Day takes place on March 29 and is raising awareness of adoption across England.

Kensington and Chelsea Council is encouraging residents to get in touch to find out about the children who are awaiting adoptive families.

Cllr Elizabeth Campbell, head of children and family services at the Royal borough, said: “Adopters are needed for our most vulnerable children, however it’s important to realise that children in local authority care come from diverse backgrounds and so do adopters.

“Potential adopters can be single, married or in a relationship, including a civil partnership or same-sex relationship, but must be at least 21-years-old.”

The council is particularly interested in talking with potential adopters who may be able to offer homes to children who are part of a sibling group or older kids, aged over four, with complex needs.
