THERE are no blanket bans in adoption.

That was the message from city adoption manager Carol Noble ahead of National Adoption Week.

With the week long campaign starting on November 5, Milton Keynes Council is keen to welcome applicants from all backgrounds and sectors of community, individuals who are united by a common goal of providing ‘forever families’ and brighter futures for children in care.

Mrs Noble said: “There are no blanket bans in adoption, so don’t think we will turn you down because you are over 40, single, or don’t own your own home.

“We want people that can offer a child or sibling group a loving and supportive family for life and help them to thrive in a forever family.”

National Adoption Week is headed by the British Association for Adoption and Fostering. It aims to increase awareness of not only the need for adopters, but the rewards of adoption.

If you would like further information Mrs Noble and her team will be availabel to answer questions on the following evenings:

Tuesday, November 6: 6-7pm in the reception of Saxon Court, 502 Avebury Boulevard

Thursday, Novemeber 8: 6-7pm in the same place
