Find out about adoption at our information evenings

Become one of the many forever families who are making a difference to young people across Wigan Borough.

There were 27 new adopters approved in Wigan Borough in 2015/16 who were ready to open their lives to children and young people who are looking for a family.

Anyone interested in finding more out about adoption can find out more at one of our information evenings taking place in Wigan town centre later this month.

WWiSH Adoption, who looks after adoption in Wigan Borough, St Helens and Warrington, will be hosting the information evenings where anyone interested in finding out more about adoption can attend to get more information on how the process works.

It is the ideal opportunity for anyone who thinks they might want to adopt but are unsure whether they might qualify to find out more.

Councillor Joanne Platt, portfolio holder for children's services, said: "If you've ever thought that adoption could be a rewarding experience then come along to this event to hear just how much you can make a difference. Those who have their forever family thanks to adoption come from all walks of life and you could get the chance to make a difference by adopting. The friendly team at WWiSH are there to guide you every step of the way and help you make the best decision you'll ever make."

The information evenings will take place on Thursday, March 16th at Wigan Town Hall Atrium 5:00pm to 7:00pm and Wednesday, March 22nd at St Helens Town Hall  5:30pm to 7:30pm. Presentation at both will start at 5:45pm.
