Kent County Council aim to deliver a responsive and professional adoption service, to fulfil our role as a corporate parent. We seek adoptive homes for a large number of children each year and are now actively recruiting families who are able to provide a loving, stable and nurturing family life to them. We welcome enquiries from all sections of the community.

We urgently need families able to consider:

  • siblings who need to grow up together;
  • children with special needs;
  • children over the age of 4 years;
  • young babies placed in a fostering for adoption arrangement.
  • We offer an in depth preparation and training programme throughout your adoption journey and there is comprehensive post adoption support available should you need this.
