New campaign seeks people who will give our children a new start in life

Help Them Shine is Buckinghamshire Council’s new campaign that’s asking people to provide a loving home for children in the council’s care who are waiting for adoption, and whose circumstances mean that they often have to wait longer to find their new family.

This can be because:

  • they are a little older
  • they are brothers and sisters who need to stay together
  • they have additional needs because of significant developmental delays in many areas
  • they have non-white ethnic heritage

These children are looking for a family where they will be nurtured in a loving environment so that they can reach their full potential. A family that will Help Them Shine.

You can adopt as a couple or as a single person. All that we ask is that you can provide a child (or children) with a stable, committed, and loving family that understands their needs. The Adoption Service is here to support you with this..

Anita Cranmer, Buckinghamshire Council’s Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, said: “These children in our care that wait longer to find a loving family have so much potential, and although they may have had a difficult start, they have their lives before them. They are waiting to find the right family so that they can grow and flourish. Could you be that family?

“Although it is incredibly rewarding, being a parent has its challenges too, which is why Buckinghamshire Council’s Adoption Service provides post-adoption support that will always be there for you.

“If you feel that you can give these children their new family life and Help Them Shine, don’t hesitate to find out more about how you can start your adoption journey.”
