This International Day of People with Disability (IDPWD), we’re asking if you could consider adopting a child with additional needs.

International Day of People with Disability (IDPWD) is celebrated on 3 December each year. It is a day to acknowledge the contributions and achievements of people with disabilities and promote awareness, understanding and acceptance in our communities.

At Birmingham Children’s Trust we’re marking International Day of People with Disability by asking potential adopters if they could adopt a child with additional needs.

We need safe, stable and loving families for our children

We believe that children of all abilities should have a safe, stable and loving family to care for them into adulthood and beyond. Unfortunately, children with disabilities often wait the longest for adoptive families through no fault of their own.

We are urging potential adopters to consider whether they could offer love, security and reassurance to these children and be the permanent family that they need.
