New Family Social


We’re a UK charity, led by LGBT+ 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 LGBT+ inclusive and friendly as possible. We aim to make the pool of available parents as wide as possible for the many children in care.

You might have just started to think about the possibility of adopting or fostering. What will it mean for you? Can you offer the support? How will I be treated? What age children can I give a home to?

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