We are a well respected voluntary adoption agency, delivering excellent results with a low disruption rate. We have a reputation for innovative work, and our adoption support services are highly regarded.
Our effective and flexible services help people to overcome barriers to adoption, as well as supporting birth families and individuals adopted through the Society.
We welcome all kinds of families for all kinds of children. As well as married couples, our adopters may be over 40, single, gay, an unmarried couple, or not on a high income. Find out more here.
Thinking about adoption?
Families for children from black or minority ethnic backgrounds are particularly welcomed (see 'Anancy' below), as are families for sibling groups or children with additional needs (see 'Widening Horizons' below).
Anancy Black Families
Our Anancy team is particularly keen to hear from you if you are black, of black mixed heritage, or part of a mixed heritage partnership. Many of the children from BME backgrounds are young, and we don't want them to have to wait to find a family. So if you are a BME family considering adoption, please contact us for more information.
Through Widening Horizons, we aim to broaden the understanding of those already engaged in the process of applying to adopt, and to broaden our own recruitment strategies to reach those who may already have knowledge and experience of children with special needs.
