We are now Adoption South East, a Regional Adoption Agency made up Brighton and Hove Council, East Sussex County Council, Surrey County Council and West Sussex County Council.

By joining our adoption services together, we bring the best practice and experience from each of the four local authorities. This means that it is easier to match a child with an adopter in any of the councils. It also means adopters, adoptive children and their birth families can use the combined services of the four authorities. To find out more please visit the Adoption South East website.
