A new nationwide campaign #YOUCANADOPT, has launched to dispel myths around who is eligible to adopt and highlight that, especially during the COVID pandemic, there are still children out there who are looking for their new family.

The campaign launches as the number of adoptions in England has fallen by a third in the past four years.

To help people realise adoption could be something for them, the #YOUCANADOPT campaign aims to break down barriers and misconceptions about who is eligible to adopt. People can adopt from a variety of backgrounds, including single parents, people from all religions, people from the LGBTQ+ and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities.

The adoption process has changed over the years and there is a lot more support available. Ultimately, most people can have the qualities to be a good parent and the campaign wants to support people to feel confident that they are capable to adopting.
