Our joined up approach to delivering adoption services -

•    allow children to be placed in a more timely way
•    help support you on your adoption journey
•    reach a wider audience of potential adopters
•    enable us to develop our services more effectively
•    share good practice across the region


Our adoption staff continue to work in our local area, with children’s social work staff, to make sure continuity of care and support for children and families - our priority is to place children needing adoption without delay, and with families able to meet their needs, while streamlining the assessment and approval process for people who want to adopt.

If you are interested in adopting, we encourage you to get in touch with us. We welcome interest in adoption from people from all walks of life. We treat everybody who is interested in adoption individually because what really matters most to a child is who you are as a person and whether you can offer a child a secure, stable and caring home.
