A brand-new adoption agency for west London will soon be launching. ‘Adopt London West’ will replace the separate adoption services for Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, Brent & Hounslow Councils and the new agency will cover all of those areas. Check back here for more information soon.
June was Pride month and the celebrations continued into July with many events taking place in London. This year marked the 50th anniversary of Stonewall and the theme was Pride Jubilee. Ealing Council positively welcomes foster carers and adopters from the LGBT community. Please contact us to find out more or come along to one of our upcoming information sessions.
We hosted a special fostering information session including a screening of the film ‘Instant Family’ on Monday 10 June in Ealing Town Hall. As well as the film we had popcorn, nachos and lots of information. We also held a question and answer session with some of our foster carers and the fostering team. The event was a big success and was well received by everyone who attended.
Foster Care Fortnight, organised by The Fostering Network, took place 13-26 May 2019 and the theme this year was ‘Change a Future’. We spent the fortnight promoting fostering to the local community to increase awareness and to encourage more people to consider becoming a foster carer for Ealing.
