Adoption Information Events

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, we have taken the decision not to hold face-to-face adoption information events for the foreseeable future. Your safety and well-being is important to us. However we do still need to find families for children who are waiting for adoption throughout the region.

We have therefore put together an information film for you to watch in your own time which contains a lot of the information you would normally receive by attending an event. Once you have watched the film you are then welcome to apply for a 'virtual visit' with one of our team to start the process. 

The link to the film is only available on request - please complete the enquiry form at the bottom of this page to request the link. If you would like to talk to one of our team about adoption, please get in touch on 0345 305 2576 or via the enquiry form below.

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.
