Change His Future

Black boys wait longer to be adopted.

Together we can #ChangeHisFuture.

We know that Black children are disproportionately represented in our care system. While Black children make up 5% of the general population, they make up 7% of the looked after children population (1), and Black children are then less likely to go on to be adopted and wait longer to find their adoptive family. Only 2% of Black children in care go on to be adopted and the number of Black children who were adopted between 2015 and 2019 went down by 50% (2).
