"If you have love, patience and empathy you can make it work and become an adopter.”
Adopt Birmingham have a long history of supporting the LGBTQ+ community grow their family through adoption.
We’re thrilled to hear that you might be considering a journey towards becoming an adoptive parent, especially if you’re part of the LGBTQIA+ community. Adopt Birmingham is here to guide you every step of the way. We prepare, approve, and support adoptive parents for children across the West Midlands. We positively encourage applicants who identify as LGBTQIA+
The majority of UK adoption agencies now have plenty of experience supporting LGBTQIA+ adopters, in fact, the UK is now one of the world leaders in this domain, setting a wonderful example for other countries to follow.
Today one in four of our adopters identify as LGBTQIA+ and we continue to work hard to ensure that that our LGBTQIA+ adopters have the same experience as their straight peers.
Head of Service, Andrew Logie says, “Today one in four of our adopters identify as LGBTQ+ and we continue to work hard to ensure that that our LGBTQ+ adopters have the same experience as their straight peers. We listen and learn from everyone who contacts our service.
“We have a long history of welcoming gay adopters. Although we have always acted within the law, we welcomed single gay adopters before adoption by same-sex couples was legalised by the Adoption and Children Act, which came into effect in 2005. We’re proud of this history and our links to the LGBTQIA+ community in Birmingham.”
