More About The Organisation

Organisation Details

About Us

The Family Placement Team recruits and supports foster carers, adopters and family link carers (respite care for disabled young people) as well as a growing number of carers who have Special Guardianship orders. We also offer advice to prospective adoptive families who wish to adopt from abroad. As part of our support to foster carers we offer respite activities for both Looked After Children and the birth children of foster carers. We provide a post adoptive service for all the people affected by adoption. This includes the provision of a counselling service to adopted adults who are searching for their birth relatives. We hold all the adoption files for people who were adopted through B&NES since 1947.
