Where will the sponsorship money go?

All donations will go directly to CCS and will be used to fund our post-adoption support services. We receive no statutory funding for our post-adoption support, most of which is delivered through CCS Adoption Support.

We offer groups, workshops and events to all adoptive families in Bristol and the surrounding areas (not just those who adopt through CCS).

Children placed for adoption have often experienced trauma in their early lives, and adoption can be a challenging process for both the children and their adoptive families. This support is so important as it helps to build strong resilient adoptive families, giving every adoption the best chance of success.

Without our incredible supporters, donors and fundraisers, we wouldn’t be able to provide this vital support. So a huge thank you to Matt and Jason!


Fancy taking on the challenge? We still have places available for the Virtual London Marathon!
