'We are pleased that adopters will have equal entitlements to leave and pay when their children come to live with them and more flexibility in their work/care arrangements.People not living in these areas or with general questions about the adoption process can contact First4Adoption, a dedicated information service for people interested in adopting a child in England, on 0300 222 0022.
Adoption is a completely new chapter in a child's life and the more support their parents receive in all senses of the word, the better able to help them to settle and thrive in their new family.
Coram offers ongoing support to families adopting with us through structured classes and programmes, advice over the phone and through informal social events.
We have bases in central and South London, East Anglia and the East Midlands and will very shortly be opening a new office in North London. There is a huge need for more adopters to come forward and Coram helps those adopting with us through every stage of the journey. Adoption is truly life-changing and we encourage people of all backgrounds and ages to contact us.'
