Councils and agencies join forces to launch adoption campaign

A new campaign aimed at recruiting more adopters across the South Wales region has been launched.

The 'Adopt Wales Cymru' campaign has been created following a rise in the number of children and young people needing forever families.

Former Olympic medallist, Jamie Baulch and TV presenter, Anna Ryder Richardson fronted the campaign, alongside current adoptive families, and a young man who was adopted as a baby.

The Adopt Wales Cymru campaign aims to raise awareness of the need for adopters and ultimately increase the opportunities to match children waiting for adoption with potential adoptive parents and families. The 'Adopt Wales Cymru' partnership consists of 12 local authorities and two voluntary adoption agencies.

To find out more about the campaign, including being able to read and view adopters real stories, please visit www.adopt-wales.co.uk.
