Our adoption team finds new families for local children who can't be brought up by their birth families. As an adopter you take on the legal rights and responsibility for a child, and they become a new member of your family. In addition to the skills required by carers, you will be making a lifelong commitment to your adopted child.
Many children are looking for a permanent home because their birth parents can’t look after them properly and they may have experienced difficulties whilst in their parent’s care. These children need love and stability for the rest of their childhood; a family they can rely on in their adult lives. In some instances they may still remain in contact - directly or indirectly - with members of their birth family.
