- Families for Children
Families for Children is an outstanding adoption agency and charity based in Devon. We place vulnerable children from all over the UK with adoptive parents across Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Cornwall and the Isles of Silly. Many of the children we place have experienced extreme trauma in their early lives though neglect and/or abuse and we are dedicated to find loving and secure families for them. We place children of all ages, sibling groups, children with disabilities, black children and children of mixed heritage.
At Families for Children we are committed to providing long term adoption support for all our families should they need us. We know the many challenges that our families face throughout their lives. We offer specialised skilled help from our adoption team for families, young people, children and birth children of adoptive parents to ensure the best possible outcomes. The money we raise through charitable events, trusts and donations goes some way to providing this support.
We are pleased to have Michael Caines as a patron and thank home for his continued support of the charity. Michael says “ Families for Children is a charity close to my heart as I myself am adopted and have benefited from growing up in a loving family. Adoption does work and gives a huge amount of benefit for the adoptee and parent alike.”

- Farms for City Children
Children’s author Michael Morpurgo and his wife Clare founded Farms for City Children at Nethercott House in Devon in 1976. The charity offers urban children from all over the country a unique opportunity to live and work together for a week at a time on a real farm in the heart of the countryside.
