Derbyshire County Council Adoption Service provides a comprehensive service to all those affected by adoption in the County.

Our recent 2013 OFSTED inspection highlighted the strength of the service we provide.

We have a number of children who have a plan for adoption and are waiting for adoptive parents.

We will work with you every step of the way, from assessment to approval within six months, ensuring you and your family are fully prepared and supported. We will also work with you to ensure that we match the most appropriate child or children to your family and provide on-going support.

We provide ongoing support through training events, support groups with a Clinical Psychologist in attendance, a duty service, a team of post adoption support social workers and family fun days.
