We are one of the best performing adoption services in the East Midlands. Each year we help dozens of people become new families for children. We welcome applications from single applicants as well as couples. Could you change a child's life?
Each year we find new families for up to 50 children who are unable to remain with their birth families. Most of these are in the 0-3 age range. There are also sibling groups of two or three children who need a home together. We also need adoptive homes for children of school age.
We try to find the right family for each child in our care who needs to be placed for adoption. Most of our adopters are matched to local children but we search the National Adoption Register as well.
Adoption is a commitment for life. You will become the permanent family for a child who cannot, for whatever reason, return home. You will take on all the rights and responsibilities of birth parent. You will give the child stability, love and security throughout their childhood and beyond.
We greatly value our adopters and do our best to make the adopting experience as clear and straightforward as possible. We know that taking the first steps to becoming an adopter can be very emotional. Our staff will put you at ease and explaining how to move forward from here. So, whatever you do next, don't talk yourself out of becoming a new family for a child without talking to us first.
There are no short-cuts but we have streamlined the way we work to make sure you do not have to wait any longer than necessary at any stage. In fact we do far better than the government thresholds for finding families for our children.
The first step to becoming an adopter is to contact us and discuss what options are open to you now or in the future. Our team has years of experience helping people through preparation and assessment.
