Adoption is built around the needs of the child but it’s also a legal process giving you duties, responsibilities and rights for that child.
By adopting a child and providing a loving, secure home you can really make a difference. We are always looking for families with the potential to adopt, could you be one of them?
In 2013-14 we placed 57 children for adoption. Many children are placed by themselves, but we also need families who can adopt two or more children to keep siblings together. Most of our children have had a poor start in life, but have huge potential to develop successfully within the right family.
We welcome prospective adopters from all sections of the community, whatever their background or marital status and are especially keen to hear from anyone who can consider children over four years old, children from black and minority ethnic groups, sibling groups and children with complex health or development needs.
We follow customer care standards developed by the professional bodies representing adoption agencies.
