Creative Concern has worked in the adoption sector for several years, supporting local authority and charitable adoption agencies to raise their profiles, and to encourage a more diverse range of people to consider adoption as a way of growing their family.
Recently, we have been honoured to work alongside two of the new ‘regional adoption agencies’ in the North of England, developing their brands and identities, and powerful launch campaigns. In early 2017, a partnership of five local authorities in Greater Manchester and Cheshire commissioned us to find a name, and create a high profile launch recruitment campaign. The result was Adoption Counts. Alongside a high impact brand and new website, Creative Concern created the creative for its extensive outdoor and digital campaign. The results speak for themselves: over 300 enquiries from future adopters have been taken since the campaign launched in July.
In summer 2017, Adoption Now (the Regional Adoption Agency for Bury, Bolton, Blackburn with Darwen, Rochdale, Oldham and Tameside) commissioned Creative Concern to develop its visual brand. Customer and colleague consultation led to the creation of a brand that reflects the agency’s eagerness to tackle the tricky questions that surround adoption and help Adoption Now stand out. The brand is set to launch in winter 2017.
