Find out who can adopt with us

Children need parents who can offer them love and support throughout childhood and beyond.

We welcome enquiries from people over the age of 21, who are UK residents or domiciled in Britain and hold no criminal convictions against children. You can be:

  • single;

  • married or in a civil partnership;

  • a couple in a committed, long-term relationship;

  • heterosexual, lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender;

  • from any ethnicity and religion;

  • someone who doesn’t have children or who is a parent already;

  • a homeowner or living in rented accommodation;

  • employed or receiving benefits;

  • people who may have a disability.

We need people of all ages, who are in good health, have energy, a capacity to understand children’s feelings, a sense of fun, and the motivation to persevere through difficult times.

If this sounds like you, please get in touch using the contact details on this site, you will be welcomed.
