Donations Image

The staff at DFW Adoption work tirelessly to find families who will be able to provide secure and loving homes for the many children who wait. We also provide a great deal of post adoption support for our families at any stage after the children join their new family and many years later if help is needed. We also provide a range of services for those with a connection to adoption whose lives have been affected. 

All this comes at a significant cost to our organisation and we do not receive any additional government funding to support our work.

We very much appreciate the efforts by our local supporters to fundraise for DFW Adoption and we would like you to consider ways of making a donation or fundraising either as a group or in an individual way. Perhaps you could think of an innovative way to raise money? We would support you to do so with publicity. Or you may wish to consider donating a regular amount each month by direct debit or arranging an individual donation. Rest assured if you are able to make a donation it will be much appreciated and will be helping us to support children and families.

If you would like your donation to make even more of a difference you can ‘Gift Aid’ it which means relief from tax relief too. For more information or an informal chat contact us 0191 3863719 or email us at or

With many thanks
