Information Sessions

Making an Initial Enquiry, Information Events & Home Visit

If you are considering adoption and would like to learn more about the challenges and rewards it can bring, Families for Children would like to hear from you.

Please download an information pack to read about the process of adoption. If you think that adoption might be the right decision for you, the next step would be to come along to an information event or arrange a home visit to talk to you in more detail about the children currently waiting for adoptive families as well as the assessment process, and your first steps to becoming an adoptive parent.

Should you wish to make an appointment for us to come and see you please call 01364 645480 or see below for our information events. We aim to respond within 48 hours of receiving your enquiry.

Please note to be considered as an adoptive parent you must be over 21, have your main home in the UK and have no serious convictions. If you are unsure please do not hesitate to contact us.
