LGBT+ Adoption & Fostering Week Information Open Day

LGBT+ adoption and fostering week information open day details on an LGBT+ flag

As part of LGBT+ Adoption & Fostering Week 2022, which is being organised by New Family Social, we are delighted to let you know that we will be holding an LGBT+ Adoption & Fostering Information Open Day in our Aberdeen Office on Tuesday, 8 March from 12 noon until 7pm.

This year we are especially keen to hear from people who are thinking about becoming permanent foster carers as we have an urgent need for foster carers in and around Aberdeen. There are far too many children waiting to be fostered and we need your help!

Come along at a time that suits you. There’s no need to register or let us know you’re coming (unless you want to, of course!). Just turn up and you will be made to feel very welcome.

If you want to find out more about becoming a permanent foster carer, we can tell you all about:

  • the fostering process
  • the children waiting to be fostered on a permanent basis
  • what it’s like to foster a child
  • the support we offer, including training and events
  • the financial support available to all our foster carers

You can ask as many questions as you like.

If you’re thinking about adopting, we can tell you about:

  • the adoption process
  • what it’s like to adopt a child
  • the lifelong adoption support we offer our families

Please call 01224 878158 if you have any questions or if you can’t make that day and would like to speak to someone about fostering on a permanent basis or adopting. Alternatively, please send an email to and we will get back to you.

This LGBT+ Adoption & Fostering Week Information Open Day will take place in our Aberdeen office:

St Andrew’s Children’s Society
West Lodge
Greenwell Road
Aberdeen AB12 3AX

We welcome permanent fostering and adoption enquiries from all members of the community, including single people.

Please note we take the safety of all visitors to our Aberdeen office very seriously and we will be adhering to all current Covid-19 regulations for this event including self-distancing. 

We really hope you can join us.
