The Adoption Service is part of SSAFA which provides lifelong support to anyone who is currently serving or has ever served in the Royal Navy, British Army or Royal Air Force and their families.
We have over 20 years experience in supporting the military with adoption and work specifically with those in the military community at home and also support staff overseas. Priority will be given to serving personnel although we will consider ex serving personal, reservists and those with a close military connection.
We recruit train and assess individuals and couples who would like to adopt a child or children. We support adopters before, during and post adoption via our network of qualified social workers and we will continue to support adoptive families wherever they are posted.
SSAFA Adoption Agency has been an active part of the Voluntary Agency Alliance working in the region and in 2016 placed 10 children form across the region, all of whom were identified as having additional needs and hard to place.
Our service was inspected in December 2016 and received an outstanding rating for our service delivery and a good rating overall.
