LGBT Foster and Adoption event to be held at the La Tour Cycle Café, Ipswich


An event to promote fostering and adopting within Suffolk’s LGBT community will be held on 22 March 2017 in Ipswich.

The event will give potential LGBT adopters and foster carers the opportunity to gain and share knowledge as well as to discuss and reflect the rewards and challenges of fostering and adoptive parenting.

The event is at the La Tour Cycle Café, Tower Street Ipswich on Wednesday 22 March 2017 6pm to 8pm.

The presentation put on by Suffolk Fostering and Adoption Service will encourage and welcome enquiries from LGBT people and LGBT carers and adopters from Suffolk will attend the event to share their experience of fostering and adopting.

Suffolk County Councillor Stephen Burroughes, Member with Special Responsibility for Children in Care & Specialist Provision, said:

“Suffolk County Council is proud to support LGBT Fostering and Adoption Week. “Events like this are a great way for people to gain more knowledge about adopting and fostering and meet others in their situation who can share their experiences.

“We want to encourage more people in the county to foster and adopt and we welcome carers and adopters from all areas of the community. Our priority is finding families who can provide healthy and happy homes for those children most in need.”

The event will follow LGBT Adoption and Fostering week which runs from 6th – 12th March 2017.
