Adoption Information Events

Here are listings of all the information events running in your area. Please come along to one which suits you and talk to our friendly expert staff.

At the events you’ll get a better understanding of the adoption process and how suitability to adopt is assessed. You’ll hear about the types of children we have needing permanent homes, the types of backgrounds they come from, the challenges they can present and where their birth families fit in.

If you want to know more or take the next steps towards adopting with us, you should attend one of our information events. If you are not sure whether to attend an information event because you have a question about whether something in your life could be a problem for adopting, you can phone us on 01904 566007, select your local office and speak to an adoption social worker who will be able to advise.

Sometimes it is not possible to answer individual questions at the information event, but if you contact us the next day we will be happy to help with any questions you have.

Melanie and Pete

Melanie and Pete had hoped to have their own children but after IVF was unsuccessful, decided to go along to a local adoption information event 

We had been together for 10 years before we went along to the local authority adoption information evening. I was 30 and Pete was 35 at the time. Pete was a bit doubtful at first, but he met an old school friend when we were there and this seemed to help him to warm to the idea. Also we have friends who have adopted, and my cousins are adopted, so I think we started out with a reasonable awareness of adoption, its challenges and rewards.
