North West charity and Voluntary Adoption Agency, Caritas Care has been an inspiration of hope and compassion for 90 years, dedicated to building positive and brighter futures for children through adoption. As they celebrate this incredible milestone, it’s a time to reflect on the remarkable journey of Caritas Care, its impact on an incredible number of lives, and the commitment that has provided almost a century of innovative work in adoption.

Since its foundation in 1934 Caritas Care, formerly Catholic Caring Services, has been at the forefront of adoption services in the North West. With their roots deeply grounded in compassion and a commitment to the care and well-being of children, the charity has stood the test of time, constantly evolving to meet the changing needs of children and families.

Susan Swarbrick, CEO at Caritas Care said, “Over the past nine decades, we have worked and evolved through many shifts in society, legal changes, and navigated our way through old and new attitudes towards adoption. We believe that our ability to adapt to an ever changing environment has allowed us to remain a true force in finding loving and supportive families for children.”

The heartening stories of the many adoptions facilitated by Caritas Care over the past 90 years are a testimony to its commitment to children. From matching children with a family they can call their own to providing ongoing lifetime support, the charity has played a crucial role in building stable and happy futures for children across the North West.

Susan added, “Throughout our history, we have been at the forefront of embracing innovative practices through the integration of new technologies, advocating and lobbying for legislative changes with our sector colleagues, and implementing specialist therapeutic approaches. As a charity we have continuously worked hard to find ways to enhance and improve the adoption experience.”

Caritas Care recognises the diversity of families and has actively worked towards creating an inclusive environment that welcome families from all backgrounds. They believe that each individual is unique, as is every child who needs a family. There is no discrimination in relation to sexuality, ethnicity, marital status or religion. This commitment to diversity is something the charity are proud of and have worked very hard to achieve over the years.

Susan continued, “As Caritas Care celebrates 90 years of service, our focus continues to remain on the future of adoption. We will continue to be true to our vision of a time when every child has a family they can call their own filled with love, stability and the chance of a brighter future. Our aim is to leave a legacy that has shaped the future of every child and parent that we have been involved with uniting as a family.”

Caritas Care’s 90-years has seen a journey filled with hope, compassion and commitment to adoption. The charity are immensely proud to be celebrating such a wonderful journey and look forward to building brighter futures by creating loving homes for children in need for many more to come.
