LGBT adoption

Adoption for LGBT+ Families

SSAFA champions equality and diversity and our adoption agency welcomes applications from the whole of the serving military community.

We have a growing network of LGBT+ adopters. Our Social Workers and Adoption Panel members have specialist training in LGBT+ adoption and we work closely with the Armed Forces, Stonewall and our partner agency, New Family Social, to support our LGBT+ adopters.

In 2018, 40% of our adopters were in same-sex relationships, four times higher than the national average.

“At Stonewall we believe we're stronger united, so we partner with organisations that help us create real change for the better. We are proud that SSAFA The Armed Forces Charity, is a Stonewall Diversity Champion and is taking active steps to create a culture that’s inclusive of all. Their Adoption Service is now receiving an increasing number of applications from LGBT service personnel, which we are delighted to support." -- RUTH HUNT, CEO Stonewall
