Adoption and fostering

There are many Service personnel and families who are both willing and well suited to the adoption and fostering of children, and at the same time there is a great demand for loving, secure homes for Looked After Children.  The MOD have published a new DIN that sets out the policy provisions to support Service personnel who would like to adopt or foster in accordance with the relevant guidance and legislation, particularly the Children and Families Act 2014.
If you are interested please contact your HIVE for a copy of the DIN, or speak to your unit welfare staff for further detail.
