Adoption and Permanency Team

The team helps people thinking of adopting or permanently fostering a child to discuss whether they would like to do this.

It also provides a service for looked after children and supports adults who have been adopted.

The service can help with:

  • advice on adoption - what qualities are needed to adopt a child;
  • advice on adoption - the legal process;
  • matches children who need adoption with parents;
  • provides support and training for parents adopting or long term fostering a child;
  • advice in tracing parents and help with contacting them;
  • counselling to prepare for meeting birth parents; and  
  • liaise with specialist adoption agencies where needed.

To use the service, call the number below and they will offer as much advice as possible and send out an information pack.
