What is Adoption
Sometimes, when a child comes into the care of
the Local Authority, it just isn’t possible for them to return
home. We will look at the best options for the child when this
happens and in some cases, the best outcome is adoption.
Adoption is a legal process which transfers
all legal responsibility of the child to their new parent(s) and is
a permanent, life-long commitment. This offers children who have
not had the best start, the opportunity to live happy, healthy,
fulfilling lives with their new families.
It’s also the chance for you, as an adoptive
parent, to begin or complete a family of your own.
We welcome enquiries from people of all
religions, races, genders and sexuality. Those who have chosen to
adopt reflect a wide range of circumstances and life experience and
we assess every application on an individual basis.
There is a lot of information about adoption on these pages, so
