Families for Children Trust

Families for Children finds loving and supporting adoptive families for the most vulnerable and hardest to place children; including sibling groups, older children and those with additional needs. FFC place children from all over the UK into loving and secure homes across the South West. FFC hold a vital archive of adoption records dating back to 1948 and our Birth Tracing Service is unfunded. FFC rely on voluntary contributions and in 2017 we have launched the first "Centre of Excellence"

Founded 2002

  • Mission statement

    Families for Children is a voluntary Adoption Agency. We believe that the best place for children to grow up is within their family of origin. Where this is not possible, we endeavour to find adoptive families for children who need them. We place a high value on offering these children and families ongoing support.

    We recognise the diverse society in which we live and, in the services we offer, seek to meet the complex needs of children, valuing and respecting their culture, identity and personal history. As a Christian organisation concerned with the welfare of children, parents and families, our attitudes and practices are shaped by Christian values and we therefore aim to uphold the importance of love, marriage, family life and the dignity of each individual.

  • Aims

    Families for Children Trust aims to:

    • To find new and loving adoptive homes for children currently in the Care System and to support them and their new families for as long as our help is needed through our 'Forever Policy' of support.
