Dates for Adoption Week 2017 Announced

The Scottish Government has announced plans for Adoption Week Scotland 2017 – which will run from 20th to 25th November and be organised jointly by Adoption UK Scotland and the Adoption & Fostering Alliance (AFA) Scotland in collaboration with Scotland’s Adoption Register.

The campaign seeks to raise awareness and highlight the continued importance of adoption in Scotland despite the  changes and challenges in the way it works and publicise the continued need to find adoptive families for children and provide guidance to people at all stages of this lifelong process.

Adoption UK will provide detailed information about the events running during the week closer to the time,  including information roadshows in different parts of the country, a conference in Edinburgh and a family day.  The organisation will also  provide information to support agencies wanting to run local campaigns in parallel with Adoption Week as well as publicity for the press and wider public.
