Lincolnshire Adoption Service shortlisted for national award ahead of Grantham information event


A county adoption service has been shortlisted for an excellence award ahead of an event in Grantham this week.

Lincolnshire Adoption Service has been shortlisted for First4Adoption’s Excellence in Adoption Practice Award.

First4Adoption is the national information service for people who are interested in adoption. Their award recognises and celebrates good practice and exceptional achievement among those working or involved in adoption in the UK.

The awards take place in London during National Adoption Week, on Tuesday, October 20, to celebrate the achievements of those agencies that have been shortlisted and to announce the winners.

Anne Johnson, Acting Adoption Team Manager, said: “We are very proud to have been shortlisted for this award. The Lincolnshire Adoption Team works hard to provide a high quality service for the children and adopters in the county and it is really positive that this has been recognised nationally. It would be great if we could win, but just raising the profile of adoption in National Adoption Week may hopefully encourage adopters to come forward for the children we have waiting.”

Local residents are invited to attend two information events with Lincolnshire’s adopters being held from 7pm to 9pm on Tuesday, October 20 at The Guildhall in Grantham, and on Thursday, October 22 at The Showroom in Lincoln. For more information, or to book your place call 01522 554114 or go to www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/nationaladoptionweek

In Lincolnshire there is a particular need for adopters of:

children aged four years and above

children with additional needs and disabilities

brothers and sisters who need to be kept together

Lincolnshire Adoption Service was rated as ‘Outstanding’ in the last two Ofsted inspections of 2012 and 2015.
