Families for Children Trust is a Voluntary Adoption Agency in Devon, Cornwall and Dorset. (Registered Charity No. 1093131)
Our head office is based at Buckfast in Devon where we have ample parking, private meeting rooms and available conference facilities.
We existed for many years as a joint venture operated by the Exeter Diocesan Board for Christian Care and the Plymouth Diocesan Catholic Children's Society. The agency in 2003 became a separate charity in its own right.
We hold adoption files from 1948 for the Society which was then known as the Plymouth Diocesan Children's Rescue Society and from 1954 for the Exeter Diocesan Board for Christian Care
Although we are a Christian agency we are pleased to welcome enquiries from other faiths and cultures and as a Christian organisation concerned with the welfare of children, parents and families, our attitudes and practices are shaped by Christian values and we therefore aim to uphold the importance of love, marriage, family life and the dignity of each individual.
