A campaign, encouraging people to foster and adopt siblings together, has been launched by Brent Council.
National Adoption Week 2017 runs from Monday (October 16) to Sunday (October 22).
To recognise it, Brent Council is urging prospective foster carers and adoptive parents to keep families together take siblings into their care.
Figures from the government's national adoption database, First4Adoption, show brothers and sisters wait longer than single children to be placed with a "forever family".
There are currently 7 children in Brent in need of adoption or foster homes.
Councillor Mili Patel, Brent Council's cabinet member for children and young people, said: "Many children and young people, through no fault of their own, are unable to live with their birth family.
"Sometimes, it may be one child who requires care, other times it is brothers or sisters in need of fostering or adoption.
"Having a stable family environment is important for children as they become young adults and is vital for their long-term well-being."
Cllr Patel added: "This year, we are asking families to look into their hearts and homes by considering fostering or adoption in Brent.
"You can show your support for our campaign by using the #supportadoption hashtag on social media."
Brent Civic Centre is hosting an evening for people to find out more about fostering and adopting children on November 2 between 6pm and 8pm.
