Family Care Adoption Services
Who we are
Family Care is a Regional Specialist Adoption Agency with offices in Belfast and in Derry, and we have now been working across Northern Ireland for 50 years.
We recruit, assess and approve new adoptive families to meet the needs of vulnerable children who for reasons that are not their fault cannot remain with their birth families.
We provide ongoing help and support to these new families for as long as we are needed.
We offer a research, counselling and support service to adults who as children were adopted, fosterered or rasied in care, and to birth families seeking information about their family member.
Family Care has a team of dedicated and highly skilled Social Work and support staff who play a key role in helping to maximise opportunities for children who need a new start.
We welcome those who want to adopt regardless of their background, denomination, marital status, sexuality or culture, including those wishing to be parents for the first time, and those already parenting adopted or birth children.
We are committed to supporting our adoptive families and their children for as long as we are needed, and we apprecaite your generosity and support in helping us to do this.
