St Francis’ Children’s Society
We are a children’s charity and an independent adoption agency especially committed to finding families for children who wait longest in the care system. Although we work within a 50 mile radius of our office in Milton Keynes, the children we place come from across the UK. Adoption today is not about finding homes for babies, but rather finding families for children of a range of ages. Most of these children will have had troubled early years and may have been neglected or physically, emotionally or sexually abused. We help find them adoptive parents who can offer them a family life where they are loved, protected and encouraged to achieve their full potential.
We offer life-long support to these children and their adoptive families and are here whenever they need us. Help us make a difference by joining our MK Marathon and Half Marathon team. You will receive dedicated support from Leanne, our Fundraising Officer who will be there for you every step of the way.
