Our Adoption Services Team find loving homes for children. Our service was judged as outstanding in the 2012 Ofsted inspection.
Anyone who is 21 or older can adopt, no matter what their background is like. They just need to offer a secure and loving home.
The adoption process has three stages. There's a more detailed version of this in our adoption information brochure.
There are all kinds of children who need adopting. This includes sibling groups and children with special needs.
We can still offer you support after your Adoption Order. We hold regular talks as part of our Adopter's Group.
We support Special Guardians to enable them to provide a positive home environment for the children in their care
You may want to adopt a child from your partner's previous relationship. Our Children's Social Care Team will be in touch with you.
If you want to adopt step children, you should call the Adoption Team for advice. A social worker will complete a report.
If your child is adopted, you won't be legally responsible for them. Families for Children can offer you support.
