Adoption for LGBT+

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

In 2018, 40% of our adopters were in same-sex relationships, four times higher than the national average. This has led the SSAFA adoption team to become experts in both military and LGBT+ adoption placements.

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.

The SSAFA Adoption team understands you may have some unique concerns: If you have any questions about adopting as an LGBT+ family or any other aspect of the adoption process please contact us today.
