Find out about adoption from a Muslim perspective

Find out about adoption from a Muslim perspective

The Coram-Harrow adoption partnership is holding a special event for those interested in adoption from a Muslim perspective

There will be an introduction to Coram’s adoption services, a short talk from an adoptive mother who is Muslim and a special short film screening from a new documentary series by the Islam Channel, which considers issues around adoption and the Muslim faith.

There will then be a Q and A (Question and Answer) session with a panel, including the Coram-Harrow adoption manager, a representative from a documentary series shown on the Islam Channel and a Coram adopter who is a Muslim.

The event is being organised as part of National Adoption Week and aims to encourage more adopters from the Muslim faith.

Coram is a leading adoption service which operates across all London boroughs and also provides adoption services for the London borough of Harrow. The event is open to people living across London. 

Coram’s adoption partnership with Harrow was the first of its kind and involves Coram’s experts working with the Council to provide early intervention and “permanence planning” for children in the borough. Since the partnership began in 2006, every child referred has found a loving, supportive adoptive family.

Coram has also been chosen as the Mayor of Harrow's charity of the year, click here to find out more.
