Thank you for considering Adoption
We are looking for families for children for a range of ages - from babies through to older children. The information you will need to begin your adoption journey can be found on this page as well as the information bar to the left.
Adoption is a legal way for a child or young person (up to 18 years) to gain a new legal parent(s). Legally, it is as if they had been born to their new parents once they are adopted.
If you are interested in adopting, we have a lot of information on the pages that can be found on the navigation bar on the left (or under this page if you are on mobile).
To speak to a member of our adoption team, please call 0191 561 2221 or email email@example.com.
Click here to Register an Expression of Interest in Adoption and a member of our team will get back to you.
We also host a drop-in Information Evening every month that you may attend:
Unfortunately our information evenings are postponed until further notice. If you wish to discuss adoption, please contact our team on 0191 561 2221 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
