Adoption and Muslims in England_Social Worker Toolkit 1 ( PDF, 1.11 MB)

We hope you find this toolkit useful. On pages 12-19 you will see details of common issues that Muslim prospective adopters face.

Muslim adopters may also require guidance and reassurance as adoption often brings up specific concerns regarding lineage and naming, inheritance, Hijab, Mahram wet nursing and concerns about privacy and boundaries (see glossary on page 29 for definitions). My Adoption Family offer clear and confidential guidance around these areas to both adoptive parents and professionals. For any questions not covered in this toolkit, you can email visit our website or email for confidential advice.
