Black children and adoption

Coram has published a report from the Adoption and Special Guardianship Leadership Board looking at racial disparity in adoption in England. Findings include: Black children are overrepresented in the care system, wait longer for adoption than White children and are less likely to be adopted. The report sets out a strategy to reduce disparity through: recruiting Black adopters and matching Black children, rebuilding trust between Black communities and the social work sector and resourcing interracial adoption.
